Ravioli Lasagna

Be the Chef with Chef Boyardee

We are so excited to be hosting a
"Be the Chef with Chef Boyardee House Party".
At the party we will show our guest how easy, quick and fun it is to serve a healthy delicious home cooked meal to your family and friends.
This meal will blow your mind
it will not look like a can cooked meal at all. 
It will look like you slaved over dinner all afternoon. 
(sprinkle flour onto your face)

Don't worry that you are going to miss the party because we are going to bring the party to you. 
Each day this week we will show you how you can decorate your table for an exciting family meal that makes full happy tummies. 
But we will also show you how you can host an elegant, inexpensive and appetizing dinner party
all from a "CAN".

1 Cup frozen loose cut leaf spinach
2 Cans (15 oz each) Chef Boyardee Beef Ravioli

3.  Place half of ravioli mixture in bottom of baking dish.  Top with half of cottage cheese mixture and 1/2 cup shredded cheese.  Repeat layers. 

4.  Bake 15 minutes or until cheese is hot and bubbly.

you can serve it at your next dinner party.

Cook's Tips
Involve the kids with the preparation .
They can stir together the cottage cheese mixture and help layer the ingredients in the dish.

Trying to please a picky eater?
Subsitute the spinach with another vegetable the family enjoys.
You could also place all of the spinach mixture between the layers of ravioli or leave the spinach out completely.
**Next time we make this dish we will use raw Spinach.**

You have two choices for dinner
Take it
Leave it

or in our family.
Eat it
