Dinner Time Busy Day Lasagna

Do you have a go-to meal that you can always count on? It is good to have several of those family favorite dinner time recipe to make on a whim. This busy day lasagna is one of those recipes. It is a tried and true family recipe which I got from Rush-Hour Recipes by Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks. It is one of those quick and easy meals you can put together in the morning and then toss in the oven and bake for dinner. 

Busy-Day Lasagna
*I served this for guest and they loved it. It really was quick and easy. I made it 6 hours ahead of time and baked it 1 hour before serving.

Ingredients
2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
1-1 1/2 c shredded Parmesan cheese
2- 26 oz jars favorite pasta sauce, divided
2- 25 oz pkgs frozen sausage & cheese ravioli, divided
12 oz pkg frozen spinach, thawed, drained & divided

Directions
Combine cheeses in a bowl; set aside. 
Spread a layer of sauce in a lightly greased 13x9 baking pan. 
Arrange a layer of ravioli on top of sauce. 
Spread a layer of spinach on top. 
Add a layer of cheese mixture, completely covering with spinach. 
Spoon some sauce over cheese. 
Repeat all the layers, ending with a layer of cheese. 
Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until cheese is melted and sauce has reduced a little. 
Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before cutting into squares. Makes 8-12 servings.

Kitchen Notes
I used only cheese ravioli and my own ground sausage, cooked and layered with the ravioli. The only problem I had with this recipe is that at 25 minutes the cheese was not melted and the sauce wasn't bubbly. So I kicked the stove up to 400 and it was done in 15 minutes. Next time I will just cook it at 400.
