Lazy Lasagna By Cucina Fresca
2 10 oz. packages Cucina Fresca fresh ravioli (any variety)
1 jar* Cucina Fresca fresh sauce (any variety)
1 cup shredded cheese
Set oven to 350 degrees and prepare an 8×8 pan with olive oil.
Pour 1/4 jar of Cucina Fresca sauce in pan; tilt pan until the sauce has coated the bottom.
Layer 10 ounces of ravioli in pan. Pour 1/4 jar of Cucina Fresca sauce over ravioli. Layer remaining 10 oz of ravioli. Pour remaining sauce over ravioli. Top with cheese.
Cover with foil and bake for 35-40 minutes. Remove foil and cook 10-15 minutes or until cheese is golden brown.
*If you choose Alfredo or Basil Cream as your sauce, thin it with 8 oz of milk for 16 oz of sauce total.
This recipe serves 4-5. To make a larger or smaller portion, remember this ratio: 8oz of sauce for every 10 oz of ravioli. Larger batches in deeper pans will require an upwards of 45 minutes covered cook time with 10-15 minutes uncovered cook time, or until cheese is golden brown.
