Chicken Ravioli Lasagna is an easy weeknight casserole that will satisfy everyone in the family. Layers of your favorite filled ravioli, chicken and broccoli are covered with a creamy, cheesy sauce and topped with plenty of mozzarella cheese. And clean-up is a cinch!
I hope everyone had a fantastic Mother’s Day yesterday. Mine was so relaxing with my husband fixing me a delicious breakfast of Blueberry French Toast and a late lunch out, dining al fresco on a bougainvillea covered patio. Ahhh! The only thing missing were my two fantastic children and four beautiful grandkids. Maybe next year.
I’ve decided that this is the way I would like to work all the time. 🙂 Mimosas and roses (courtesy of my daughter) should be the way I start my day every day. Well, maybe not too much work would get done, but, you have to admit, it is nice!
Today’s recipe was created for those busy weeknights when making dinner seems like a chore. If you’re like me, I’m tired by the end of the day and sometimes fixing dinner just seems like too much trouble. Quick fix casseroles to the rescue! This one was super simple, starting with fresh packaged ravioli, a rotisserie chicken, frozen broccoli and some pre-shredded cheese. Bingo – dinner all in one dish!
The only cooking that needs to be done is sauteing the garlic and red pepper flakes. Then it’s all about the layering. Place ravioli on the bottom of a large baking dish and sprinkle chicken on top.
Add a layer of broccoli then pour the cream sauce, which was made a little healthier by using fat-free half & half, over all.
Sprinkle with cheese and bake.
Just look at that creamy, cheesy ravioli goodness!
Take a bite and you’ll be hooked. This Chicken Ravioli Lasagna works great as leftovers for lunches during the week too!

- 2 teaspoons minced garlic

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large skillet, saute olive oil, garlic and red pepper flakes for 2 minutes. Stir in salt, pepper, white wine and lemon juice. Cook for another 3 minutes.
