Easy Baked Ravioli Marinara Sauce Pasta 2009-09-22 14:20:26


  1. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  2. 1 medium onion, chopped
  3. 3 cloves garlic, minced
  4. Coarse salt and ground pepper
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme, or oregano
  6. 1 can (28 ounces) whole tomatoes
  7. 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  8. 2 pounds store-bought ravioli
  9. 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  10. 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and season with salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add thyme and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, breaking up tomatoes with spoon, until sauce is thickened and reduced to about 5 1/2 cups, 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook ravioli in a large pot of boiling salted water just until they float to the top (pasta will continue to cook in oven). Drain pasta; return to pot.
  4. Toss sauce with pasta. Pour pasta into a large gratin dish or 9-by-13-inch baking dish, and sprinkle with cheeses. Bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool slightly before serving.

Serves 4-6.
