Easy Ravioli Bake

 With a new year comes new resolutions. For many, it’s getting healthier. While getting healthier is still very high on my list of priorities, my resolution this year is to be able to spend more time with my family, while still on the road to wellness. That means lots of easy recipes that keep me in the family room, instead of the kitchen. Lets start the year off with this Easy Ravioli Bake recipe!

Spend less time in the kitchen and more time with your family with this Easy Ravioli Bake recipe.

Now I’m not in any way saying this Easy Ravioli Bake is a healthy dish, but I am saying it’s easy. When I serve this as a dinner for my family, I pair it with a green salad filled with veggies. It makes me feel a little less guilty.

All things in moderation, right?

Let’s get to the recipe.


All-Clad Stainless Steel Tri-Ply Bonded Skillet with LidAll-Clad Stainless Steel Tri-Ply Bonded Skillet with Lid

Pro Tip: For the longest I used skillets that came in those cheap cookware sets you can buy on discount around Christmas. It wasn’t until I spent a little extra cash on a quality skillet that I noticed the difference in how well it cooked. Woah! It’s totally different. Not only does a quality skillet provide an even cook throughout, the highly polished cooking surface on this All-Clad option offers stick resistance and easy maintenance. It’s also oven and broiler-safe up to 600 degrees F and compatible with induction ovens. This option has a limited lifetime warranty and it’s made in good ‘ole USA. Plus, I can’t find one cheaper than Amazon!

For me, easy recipes like this one are essential in my recipe arsenal. I need those easy recipes at least one night out of the week. So what if it’s a little higher in calories than normal. Pair it with a light vegetable salad and workout a little harder the next day. If it gives me a little more time to spend with my family, I’m all for it.
