Ingredients for ravioli casserole being layered in a dish.

My group loves ravioli.  There’s just something about those scrumptious stuffed little pasta pockets that they find completely irresistible.  And while we usually eat them bathed in marinara, there are those occasions where I like to mix it up and have a little white sauce.  When I do, this is my go-to dish- White Ravioli Casserole!

Part lasagna, part pasta bake, this easy dish loaded with comfort food goodness.  Gooey melted cheese, al dente pasta, sausage- this is a meal that just says home!  But it doesn’t take all day to make!  I forego homemade alfredo sauce for a jarred version (they are just so good these days!) and use frozen ravioli and pre-cooked sausage crumbles.  Sometimes good food is right at our fingertips; we just have to put it together!

I made this quick dish for some friends we had over the night, and they loved it.  It’s because of them that I’m sharing the recipe!  There’s nothing better than spending time over a good meal, laughing, sharing memories and making plans to get together again.  And if an easy, little shortcut recipe can help us do that, I’ll share again and again.
