Pretend Lasagna

I love getting my son in the kitchen with the kid-friendly recipes from High Five magazine, and this month’s recipe was particularly ingenious. Lasagna made with ravioli instead??? This is a hack grown-ups are going to want to steal as well! Vary the amounts or types of veggies below, to suit your family’s taste.


  • 1 (24-ounce) jar pasta sauce
  • 1 (10-ounce) package ravioli (such as Soy Boy), thawed
  • 1 cup shredded Daiya mozzarella
  • 1 cup chopped baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons sliced black olives
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs
  1. Have your child spread a thin layer of the sauce in the bottom of a 13×9-inch baking dish.Pretend Lasagna (1)
  2. Top with half of the ravioli.Pretend Lasagna (4)
  3. Sprinkle with half of the veggies and half of the cheese. Repeat the layers (sauce, ravioli, veggies), ending with a final layer of cheese. Sprinkle with the herbs.Pretend Lasagna (2)
  4. Adults, cover the dish with foil and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake a final 5 minutes. Let stand at least 10 minutes before serving.Pretend Lasagna (5)
