Take-out Tuesday, Pumpkin Alfredo Ravioli Bake

Weeknight dinners at my house have to be kid friendly,

but I want to make them appealing to adults too

I also want them to be as effortless as possible!

This baked Sausage Ravioli with Pumpkin Alfredo checks all those boxes

I discovered a total game changer with this recipe…

You don’t have to boil the ravioli before putting it in this casserole!

All you need is 1 can of pumpkin,

2 jars of Alfredo sauce, refrigerated ravioli, and cheese

Whisk the pumpkin into the Alfredo sauce in a sauce pan

over medium low heat until it is smooth and combined

Put a thin layer in the bottom of your baking dish

Place an even layer of ravioli on top

Sprinkle with cheese

Repeat layers by adding another layer of sauce

The rest of the ravioil

Then instead of cheese for this final layer,

cover the whole dish with remaining sauce

Then sprinkle with cheese

Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or up to 24 hours

Before baking,

let the casserole sit a room temperature for 30-60 minutes

Then bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes until hot and bubbling

Sprinkle with Parmesan when serving

Pair the ravioli with a green salad and a piece of garlic bread

Dinner is ready!

I got 3 thank yous and “I got seconds!” from Super Boy, my pickiest eater!

Tip: Try Ina Garten’s Noodle shortcut for Lasagna~ she puts her lasagna noodles into a baking dish and pours hot water over them, and lets them soak for a few minutes to soften. Then she drains them and starts building her lasagna, no boiling necessary!

    What a delicious looking dish. I don’t have access to that kind of ravioli out in the country, but am looking forward to it when I winter in Oklahoma. The pumpkin flavor should be seasonally perfect!

    Super boy’s stamp of approval is the highest compliment anyone can receive. 

  7. Pumpkin and sausage, that is a winning combination as far as I’m concerned.

    A yummy combo of flavors Jenna! I know you were happy to get thank yous and seconds from the boys. A caterer friend introduced me to the hot water-lasagna noodle tip years ago, it’s such a time saver. Happy Wednesday ♥
