Ever sit and think about the ingredients you have on hand and wonder “what can I make with this”? I knew I had sausage and frozen ravioli in the freezer. So I added these ingredients into the Yummly app and found this Skillet Ravioli Lasanga. A quick stop at store for ricotta and within a half hour we had dinner on the table. This is a quick and hearty meal for a busy weeknight. Give it a try and tell me what you think.
1 lb. Hot Italian sausage, casings removed
2 c. marinara
1/2 c. water
1 lb. cheese ravioli
1 1/2 c. ricotta
1 large egg
Freshly ground black pepper
1 c. shredded mozzarella
Heat broiler. In a cast-iron or ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat, cook sausage until browned and no longer pink, breaking it up with the back of a wooden spoon, 6 to 8 minutes. (Drain fat, if desired.) Add marinara and water to pan and bring to a simmer. Add ravioli and let simmer until ravioli is tender and sauce slightly thickens, 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together ricotta and egg and season with salt and pepper. Drop spoonfuls of ricotta mixture all over the ravioli and let cook, 3 minutes.
Sprinkle mozzarella all over, then transfer skillet to oven and broil until cheese is golden, 3 minutes. Let cool, 10 minutes, then serve.
