  • 1 (24 ounce) jar marinara sauce

  • 1 (9 ounce) package frozen cheese ravioli

  • 1 (14 ounce) package frozen cooked meatballs, thawed

  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese, or more to taste

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste (Optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch casserole dish with olive oil spray.

  2. Pour about 1/2 of the marinara sauce into the bottom of the dish. In a single layer, place 1/2 of frozen ravioli on the sauce along with 1/2 of meatballs, and 1 cup mozzarella cheese.

  3. Place the remaining ravioli, meatballs, marinara sauce, and mozzarella cheese in that order on the casserole; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes. Cover with aluminum foil.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove the foil, and bake until casserole is bubbly and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes more. Sprinkle with additional grated Parmesan, if desired.

Cook's Note:

I typically use spinach and cheese ravioli and Classico® Italian Sausage with Peppers & Onion pasta sauce. But you choose your favorite flavors of ravioli and marinara sauce. I keep packages of ravioli that I buy on sale in the freezer, but you don't have to use frozen ravioli in this casserole. If you're a pecorino Romano cheese fan, go ahead and substitute it for the Parmesan.
