First off, this is a wonderful dish but implying that it's Lasagna is misleading. I wish it was called something else so some people wouldn't be disappointed when making it!!! ************************************** Important Note: Instead of adding another jar of sauce like some of the other readers suggested, I just added 1/2 jar of water to the sauce and then simmered it for 20 minutes. The reason that this recipe probably didn't have enough sauce when it finished baking was more than likely due to the fact that raviolis soak up water while they're cooking. The addition of the extra water gives the raviolis the water to plump up, instead of using the water from the sauce. This keeps the consistancy of the sauce like it should be, instead of drying out. Another bonus is that you don't have to use an extra jar of sauce, which only increases the expense of this dish unnecessarily. This dish came out GREAT.. hope this tip helps :)

Easy to make and tasty, although my wacky oven burned it a little, so for those of you who have a quick oven, I suggest you cover while baking and check after a half hour.

This was pretty good. The kids loved it and it's hard to make something they all like. HOWEVER, don't be a dork like me and 'thaw' the ravioli. Boil them in water if they are frozen or put them in the recipe still frozen. Unfortunately, I 'thawed' them in the refridgerator and they stuck together in a clump. I boiled the clump and it all worked out okay in the end but I think the results would have been somewhat better if I had just boiled them while still frozen before adding them to the recipe. I should have known better (hanging head in shame).

Ok so I have to admit that I saw the Lazy part of this recipe and had to try it. It was great. I took another reviewers advice and used italian sausage instead of beef and it was great. Found a new way to make lasagna without having to take up an entire evening. Thanks for the help.

Super easy and very tasty. My family loved this lasagne and the house smelled terrific. I used Italian sausage instead of ground beef, 2 jars of spaghetti sauce, more mozzarella and a larger baking dish. This is quick to assemble and tastes like you slaved in the kitchen. I served this with garlic toast and a salad.

Great idea - I had a bag of frozen ravioli in the freezer and was looking for a quick meal! I used a can of low fat alfredo sauce instead of the spaghetti sauce because my husband likes it more.

This was pretty good! However I did add some Sweet Italian sausage, fennel seeds, dried parsley and dried basil and a little sugar to the sauce to give it more favor. (I also simmer my sauce for 15 mins) It turned out great. I well definitely make it again.

This was a huge hit! I forgot to get more cheese raviolis the day I made it so I used chicken & mozzarella raviolis on the bottom layer and cheese ones on the top. I thought it might be kinda weird but it was delicious. Another reviewer said to add water for the raviolis to soak up... don't! It was kinda soupy, but still very good.
