Kinda-Homemade Ravioli Lasagna

“With your busy schedule, healthy ambitions, and limited time, you’ve got a lot on your plate. So, you don’t always have to time think about what’s actually going on your plate— your dinner plate.

That’s where we come in. ReadySetEat helps you solve the “What’s for dinner?” dilemma. We’re serving up simple dinner ideas that you can make in 30 minutes or less with a few common ingredients you’re likely to have in your kitchen, including the ConAgra Foods brands you know and trust.”

I love Kinda-Homemade Cooking!

I like cooking dinner for this big mix of extended family I currently have living with me… But honestly, I’m not a very experienced cook. Until a year and a half ago, I had always lived on my own. Cooking for one is a completely different experience than cooking for eight people- Woah!

I try to find meals I can make quickly without too much prep, which is why I LOVE the recipes on Ready, Set, Eat – they save a ton of time by building on a few ready-made products. I still feel like I made a “real” meal, but it’s easy peasy! Plus, so many of the brands are items that I can easily find coupons for, so it also saves me a lot of money.

Chef Boyardee Recipes Rock!

There is a whole page filled with recipes from Chef Boyardee, and since the boys in my house LOVE anything from Chef Boyardee, these have been a HUGE hit!

Ravioli Lasagna

I decided to make the Ravioli Lasagna, {you can find the recipe here if you want to try it too- Chef Boyardee Ravioli Lasagna.} and the boys ATE. IT. UP!! I love the addition of the spinach, since it snuck veggie’s in, and the boys didn’t even realize it!

I made a few adjustments to the recipe when I made it:

  • I used Ricotta cheese, since I’m not a fan of cottage cheese. Worked perfectly.
  • Someone had eaten half of the package of Italian Cheese Blend that I had in the fridge, so I used half a cup of cheddar cheese. Tasted great.
  • And we used the BIG Beef Raviolis instead of the regular version, since that’s what I had a coupon for!

I also added some whole-wheat breadcrumbs to the top, to give a tiny bit of crunch. I served this with salad and garlic bread, and it was the easiest dinner I’ve made in weeks!
