HOW LONG DOES IT REALLY TAKE TO MAKE RAVIOLI LASAGNA?
One of the many reasons I love using frozen ravioli is because it takes less time. This Ravioli Lasagna recipe takes approximately 61 minutes. TOTAL.
- About 10 minutes of prep time to make the layered ravioli lasagna

- Around 15 minutes to bake uncovered until the cheese is melted

HOW DO I STORE LEFTOVER RAVIOLI LASAGNA?
You can store leftover Ravioli Lasagna in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to 5 days or in your freezer for up to 3 months.

CAN I USE TOMATO SAUCE INSTEAD OF MARINARA PASTA SAUCE

The steps will be the same but the taste of the dish will be slightly different.
