Skillet Ravioli Lasagna
Carolyn A. Hodges, R.D.
“This easy inside-out ravioli lasagna is the ultimate weeknight comfort food—no layering or mixing bowls required. Feel free to swap in ground turkey for the beef. Look for fresh mozzarella balls (also called "pearls") in the specialty cheese section of your grocery store.”
1 (24 ounce) package frozen or refrigerated cheese ravioli
1 pound lean ground beef
1½ teaspoons dried oregano
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground pepper
1 (28 ounce) can no-salt-added crushed tomatoes
¼ cup chopped fresh basil
8 ounces small fresh mozzarella balls, divided
1Preheat broiler. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook ravioli according to package directions; drain and set aside.
2Meanwhile, cook ground beef in a large cast-iron or oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat until cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes, using the back of a wooden spoon to crumble the beef. Season with oregano, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
3Add tomatoes and basil; bring to a simmer. Fold in the cooked ravioli and half of the mozzarella balls.
4Scatter the remaining mozzarella balls over the top of the pasta. Carefully transfer the pan to the oven. Broil until the cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes.
