You have come up with a surprisingly easy recipe. Since I hate preboiling the lasagna noodles, this works well with cheese filled ravioli. Add your own meat sauce and it would be super.

bearnmom, I love lasagna but don't like making it. With this recipe you have the best of both worlds.

The parmesan casserole bread sounds fabulous! We don't have any prepared foods here, but I could use fresh spinach, make a quick marinara and use dried ravioli. It would still be a fairly quick and easy meal for here. Thanks for sharing!

vespawoolfe, it sounds like it could work. Wow, no prepared foods, some people would have a hard time with that. I bet everything taste better freshly made.

This is such a great idea using the ready ravioli. I wish I had seen this last week when I made a batch of lasagne. What an easy way to make this dish. I will definitely put this one to use. Wonderful.

Yum....that's all I can say! I could make a meal out of the fresh-baked bread, but I won't! Going to make both when I get back home, because my daughter and I are both always on the run! Upped+++ because it looks and sounds so good!
