Ravioli Lasagna

Ben loves lasagna, and I love to make him happy (cheezy yes, but what can I say?).  However, lasagna is a lot of work even with most of the shortcuts.  A few weeks ago, a brilliant idea hit me: why not make lasagna with ravioli?  BINGO!!!  A new recipe was born!

{Ravioli Lasagna}

This recipe can be made with pre-made spaghetti sauce.  However, since I am still swimming in tomatoes, I made my sauce from scratch.  Otherwise, this recipe is as easy as brown beef, add sauce, layer, bake, and ENJOY!

{Easy tomato sauce--cut tomatoes and throw in a pot with olive oil, onion, garlic, parsley, and black pepper.  Simmer until sauce consistency.}

{Cheese raviolis!}

{Layering the lasagna--always start with sauce for easier clean-up!}
