    This was great! My husband likes "traditional" lasagna, so he gave me some slack on the spinach and ravioli part. But he loved loved loved it! It was easy and really good. I did use frozen spinach thawed and drained in this recipe which worked well.

    Delicious and easy weeknight supper. I took some other suggestions and doubled the pesto sauce and am glad I did so. I think it gave it a richer flavor. Also, used mini cheese ravioli and diced Tyson chicken. Instead of tearing the spinach I used my pizza cutter which made it even quicker to prepare.

    I have made this recipe several times now. I have even mixed half red sauce with half alfrado. It was great and gave a different variation of it.

    Made this tonight and not only was it easy, but the whole family raved about it. I was surprised at the amount of flavor it held, too. Very, very good. This will be a regular at our house!

    This is great! A variation that I like is using sun dried tomato alfredo sauce. I also like to saute 3-4 sliced chicken and apple sausage links to add on top of the spinach layer.

    This recipe is 5 stars on it's own but can go to 5 plus stars when you add diced cook chicken breast and sundried tomatoes. My husband and kids wolfed this down and even though it was easy enough for everyday, it is special enough that I would serve it for company or as a dish to take to someone. Can't say enough about it !

    This is a great five-ingredient casserole that's ideal for busy nights, since you don't even have to cook the pasta. I liked the variation of using a white sauce instead of red, and the spinach-pesto mixture gave this dish a huge punch of flavor.

    This recipe was absolutely delicious and very easy to put together. I did it early in the morning and kept it refrigerated until ready to bake for dinner. I added a couple of things. I added cut-up Chorizo sausage in the layering after the first and second layers of spinach/pesto combo and I also added a layer of shredded cheese at that time too. I divided the Alfredo sauce in to thirds (made my own Alfredo sauce) so that I could add a final dose of it at the end when it final baked…. After it final baked, I added the layer of cheese the recipe calls for, baked/melted the cheese for 5 minutes. I then poured the remaining alfredo sauce over top and baked it again another 5 minutes until bubbly! I served a side salad with this meal.... A friend of ours surprised us by stopping over just about the time we were getting ready to eat this dinner and she already has asked for the recipe! It is a great dish to take to someone's house for any occasion. This one is a keeper recipe!

    i hate alfredo sauce but the idea of using raviolis in a lasagna sounded great. so i made a meat sauce and used it instead of the alfredo. it was great. i will definately make this again.

    I just made this and my boyfriend loved it and so did my son. I did double the pesto and added diced chicken. It really didn't need the chicken. Has so much flavor! Taste like something you would eat at a fancy Italian Restaurant:)I garnished it with some diced basil I had in my garden.Yummy!

    This was first introduced to me by a member of our sportsmen's club at a banquet, and it was even good when they substituted thawed frozen spinach! The refrigerator-case pesto is a must--neither regular jarred nor prepared dry has the flavor--I think they used Buitano in the magazine recipe. I normally have plain mozzarella to use and it's still great. Gets raves at potlucks!

  • nottoosoupy Posted: 08/21/11

    Really good. I make my own pesto so used that, and had to substitute fresh swiss chard for the spinach because that was what I had. I also threw in a couple sliced zukes I had left over into the layers. Really easy to put together - easy to clean up - nice dish!

    I served this at a neighborhood ladies' night and everyone raved about it. I will definitely make it again and it was really easy.

    This is soooo good. This is a wonderful cooking dish and an italian dish. You must try this.

    I made this tonight for dinner. Great recipe, I will make again. The pesto was over powering to us next time I will us less. I'm in Germany so the pesto sauce was very thick and concentrated, not sure if it's the same in the US. I layered in the cheese as well. My husband wanted some chicken thrown in next time. I will keep this as is for our vegetarian friends.

    This is a great lasagna recipe when you want little prep and big results. I used frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry. The spinach mixture needs salt and I would add a layer of the 6 cheese blend in the middle layer.

    Would love to try this, but I'm unsure about the preparation, being that the raviolis are frozen & uncooked. Is this the way you all prepared this dish?

    Yummy-licious!!!! Tastes like warm spinach dip! I am going to add artichoke hearts next time. After that I am going to add sliced mushrooms and maybe some red onions!! Wonder if Feta Cheese would work as well??? Hmmmmmm....

    Very easy to prepare. Good dish for compnay. A bit rich for me, I added chicken the second time and it helped.

  • LesaMullins Posted: 03/18/12

    DELICIOUS! I used 3 different ravioli flavors that I found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store instead of frozen cheese flavor. They were delicious and I baked it the same amount of time and they were fine. I also sauteed some chicken tenderloins, cut them up and added them in. Will definitely make this one again.... May even add some gorgonzola cheese spinkled on top before serving next time..... : )

    Delishious and Super Quick (if you follow the recipe, as is). It would be good with some chicken or sausage, for sure. But, it was really great without the added hassle of preparing any meat for it!! I added some finely chopped green peppers and onions to mine tonight!! The entire family ate a full plate, Even the Kids! It tastes like something you'd order from a restaurant. My only other substitutions were that I used the Buittoni Fresh Ravioli (Deli Dept Usually) - Family Size Portion 25 oz. And I used the Classico Basil Pesto (I would NOT have doubled - the 1/3 cup was plenty). I also used Fresh Spinach leaves - washed and torn into smaller pieces with the stems torn off. The only thing I did wrong this time, I ended up with a good handful of ravioli's leftover, that should have been in the casserole, because I was layering them nice and neatly in a single layer across the pan - don't do that!! Just throw them in...divided evenly between the layers! 2 Thumbs Up!

    This was great! made my own pesto for it and was pretty excited about how it turned out!

  • Travis1230 Posted: 11/03/13

    Disapointed. Followed the recipe exactly as shown including the brands used. Very weak if any flavor at all. My husband could not wait for dessert. Might try again using meat sauce instead. :-(

  • millerad Posted: 10/21/13

    I made this tonight with a few minor changes, due to what I could get. I used chicken broth instead of veg broth, because that is what I had. I used 5 oz of spinach, because that is what came in my container, and since I could not get pesto in my grocery store, I used 2 T of olive oil and added some dried basil. Although it came out very tasty, it is a VERY high "point" meal, if you are counting WW points. lol. I will make this again, but next time will use marinara sauce and perhaps add in some other veggies with the spinach. I think it would also be nice with different flavored raviolis.

    I hardy ever leave reviews, but I must say this was very good!! I added an extra tablespoon of pesto, grilled chicken and chopped onions
