So a couple weeks ago while watching tv I hear my wife call out “hey this looks good!” This was a familiar phrase spoken between us if we were scrolling through Facebook and saw a good looking recipe.
This video I was seeing caught my eyes as well. Granted any Italian food typically does. This video was actually an advertisement for HelloFresh, a home meal delivery service.
This video portrayed would could be best described as a tortellini casserole. I decided to give this recipe a try within a few days but with a few changes. I decided to use a more friendly stackable pasta in ravioli. The semi-tough part here was trying to work without the recipe though the dish was simple enough.
The following is my interpretation of this recipe with some estimates on ingredient amounts.
ITALIAN RAVIOLI CASSEROLE
48 cheese ravioli
8oz sliced white button mushroom
24 slices pepperoni
8 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
12-16 oz marinara sauce depending on taste
Salt-pepper-oregano to taste
First step is to boil your ravioli. At this point I had a few things running through mind. Mostly looking a few steps ahead of this recipe. Did not pay attention to how many raviolis were cooked. It’s ok though, I had a few left over.
Next, layer 24 pieces of ravioli:
Next add a layer of mozzarella:
Once it’s all put together sprinkle some salt, black pepper, and oregano on top. I threw a mushroom slice and pepperoni slice on top to know which side was which and double as a garnish. I placed in a preheated 350 degree oven for 25 minutes covered with aluminum foil. Then removed foil and cooked 10 more minutes to brown the cheese on top. And voilà
