Your cast iron skillet is about to do the ravioli lasagna dance!
Hi! How are ya? I'm fine, thanks! Just really, really, really jazzed to talk about this ravioli skillet lasagna mess. Can we just jump right to it or did you have anything else you wanted to talk about?
Oh, people don't say jazzed anymore? Oh. Noted.
Okay so this is one of those recipes that tastes like a LOT of work into it, when really all you did was simmer, layer, simmer, and watch Rachel and Ross fall apart because clearly they WERE ON A BREAK. It comes together in about 30 and your work is seriously nil to the nil. Let's make it!
Grab some frozen ravioli. I used beef this time but you can totally use the cheese. Also grab some Muir Glen marinara.
I picked their Tomato Basil because once a very long time ago I was in this burrito place and this HUGE, tattooed biker dude was in front of me and when he ordered the tomato basil tortilla it sounded like a tiny little 5-year old. And I almost completely lost it. So anytime I hear the words "tomato basil" I always think of that. The end. Grab some ricotta, an egg, some Green Giant frozen spinach and some Parmesan cheese!
First of all, get that spinach thawed! And drained. Drain it. Get it drained.
At the same time get your tomato sauce simmerin' in a skillet. Once it starts to boil, nestle the frozen ravioli right down in it. So cute, right?
While that simmers for a few, mix up the ricotta cheese, the egg and about 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese. You can also toss in a pinch of salt and pepper. Do that.
Then you'll just arrange the spinach on top of the ravioli, lawk deeez.
Then some spreadage of the ricotta mix.
Then ooooo this is after about 10 minutes of simmering. I tried to broil the ricotta cheese for color, but nothing really happened. And I got impatient.
Serve it up, Lou! (Who's Lou?)
Ohhh my gerdness, it's stinkin' good. Everything just marries up and has flavor babies and it's UGH, ridiculous.
