Simple Lasagna

Many of you may have seen this sneaky trick before. But, I loved it so much when I found it, I had to share it. This is a very simple fast lasagna. Perfect for a crazy busy day!

This is more a technique than a recipe, so the format may be different.

Simple Lasagna 

Frozen Cheese Ravioli (I like square, fits in pan better)
Your Favorite Pasta Sauce
Frozen chopped Spinach, thawed and drained
Shredded Mozzerella and/or Parmessan, for topping

Choose your pan size - if there is only two of you, use a loaf pan, if you are feeding a crowd, use a 9x13. I wanted leftovers, so I used a 9x9.  Spread enough pasta sauce to cover the bottom of your pan. Layer the frozen ravioli on top of the sauce. Layer spinach as thick as you want. Add more sauce. You can add more cheese here if you need it extra cheesy. Add next layer of ravioli. Repeat layers until your out of ravioli or until pan is full. Top with sauce and grated cheese. Cover with foil. Bake at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes or until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbly. If you like your cheese a little brown, remove foil for last 5-10 minutes.

Aren't you glad you know this trick now?

What? That easy? I've never seen that trick before. I don't like making lasagna because my noodles always come out un-cooked! Yay, thanks for sharing. I'm going to be making this soon!
