Baked Cheese Ravioli Casserole

Do you meal plan for the week or are you a spur of the moment type of person? I’m both. Sometimes I break out the list and meal plan for the rest of the week. Then there are others where the refrigerator is empty and the nearest restaurant is our only choice.

This past Saturday I woke up and found my $1 Target To Do List pad and jotted down a long list of groceries needed for this week. I feel so accomplished after making a list and it actually helps to know that we can make complete meals.

I can’t even tell you how many times we sit down for dinner and all I’ve prepared is the main dish. My husband is asking for the sides and I franticly act like they are in the refrigerator or pantry. Balance is thrown out the window and a nice main entrée meal is served with chips or whatever raw vegetables we have.

My menu planning for this week starts off with this easy baked cheese ravioli casserole. It has become a favorite in our house the past couple of weeks. This version was made with ground turkey but you can always substitute it with ground beef. I liked it better with the turkey while my husband preferred the beef.

  3. It’s amazing how much smoother your week is when you meal plan, isn’t it?

  4. Jealous of your meal planning skills! Love this casserole, friend!

  5. LOL! I totally understand about the side dishes. I forget too! This casserole looks fantastic and I wouldn’t even want a side dish.

  6. This casserole looks marvelous!! All I would need is a side of bread!! 🙂

  7. This is what I need to be making for dinner tonight. My kids would devour it. Looks so delicious.

  8. Perfect weeknight casserole, love this!

  9. We do a little bit of everything. I usually choose a couple recipes early in the week, to pick up needed ingredients on my grocery shopping trip. Other meals are leftovers redone, easy quesadillas or eggs or grilled sandwiches with soup, and my husband usually picks up on the rest of the meals. Great ravioli casserole!

  10. This would be a huge hit for dinner at our house. LOVE 🙂

  11. This looks delicious – and creative, too! I wouldn’t have thought to use ravioli in a casserole. I aspire to be the type of cook who plans a whole week of meals in advance, but I seem to hit my limit with planning about 2 meals a week, and the rest I just scrounge up whatever happens to be on hand. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one supplementing nice main dishes with random raw veggies!

  12. I’m EXACTLY the same about meals! Good to know its not just me *phew*

    that’s why casseroles rock. They’re like…a whole meal in 1 dish! and this one is completely up my alley-I love it!

  13. I need more easy meals like this for our busy weeknights!

  14. This is such a wonderful easy happy winter meal. I love it.

  15. I love this warm, comfort-food kinds of weeknight casseroles. Perfection!
