This Million Dollar Ravioli Casserole is a new favorite in our house! Meat sauce, ravioli, and tons of cheese. YUM! We ate this for lunch and dinner the same day. We just couldn't get enough of it!!! You can make this pasta casserole ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze for later. I like to make this and split it between two pans. Bake one now and freeze one for later.

As I said, we LOVED this Million Dollar Ravioli Casserole! It is loaded with tons of amazing flavor. We served this with a salad and some garlic bread. If you need a good garlic bread recipe, check out our version of Carbone's Garlic Bread. I love it!!

Favorite Store-Bought Spaghetti Sauces

I used a jar of Trader Joe's Roasted Garlic Marinara (green label) in this casserole. I also like Rao's or La Famiglia DelGrosso jarred sauces. All three of these jarred sauces taste great! I used Italian sausage for the meat sauce.

If you don't like sausage, you can swap it out for ground beef or ground turkey. You might want to add a teaspoon of Italian seasoning to the beef or turkey to give it more flavor. Totally up to you.

One last thing about the ingredients, I used a bag of frozen cheese ravioli. There is no need to thaw the ravioli first. It will cook in the casserole.

One more thing, this casserole uses cottage cheese. I already know the emails and comments that are coming from all you cottage cheese haters! Here is my take on cottage cheese: I like cottage cheese in pasta casseroles. I NEVER ever eat it straight out of the container - yuck! BUT it is heavenly in casseroles. If you haven't tried it, I really encourage you to branch out and try it. If you aren't ready to trust the word of a tried and true picky eater, you can try and substitute ricotta for the cottage cheese. If you don't use cottage cheese or ricotta, I have lots of other casseroles on the blog. Check them out! https://www.plainchicken.com/search/label/casserole

  5. Do you think if I used ricotta instead of cottage cheese, it would still be one cup?
