How to make baked ravioli

Start by making the creamy spinach sauce. Sauté an onion until soft and translucent then add chopped spinach and crushed garlic. Cook until the spinach has wilted then add cream and cornstarch mixed with milk to thicken. Season with salt, pepper and fresh lemon juice and add a big handful of grated Parmesan cheese. Layer the creamy spinach sauce with shop-bought ravioli (cheese ravioli works perfectly here) and grated mozzarella/cheddar then bake in a hot oven until golden brown on top and bubbling.

How long to bake ravioli

Shop-bought fresh ravioli requires approximately 10-15 minutes of baking in a hot oven. If you’re using frozen ravioli, extend the baking time with 10-15 minutes to ensure the ravioli is cooked through.
