Ravioli & Chard “Lasagna”

from Meal Makeover Moms “No Whine with Dinner”

Makes 4 to 5 Servings

  • 1 large bunch chard, stems and center ribs removed
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ cup pasta sauce
  • One 16-ounce bag medium-sized frozen cheese ravioli
  • 1 cup preshredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Rinse the chard well under running water until all dirt is removed. Coarsely chop the leaves.
  3. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add the chard and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Coat an 8-by-8-inch baking pan (or dish) with nonstick cooking spray. Spread ¼ cup of the sauce in the pan. Arrange half the ravioli (about 16 pieces) evenly on top of the sauce. Spread the chard over the ravioli then top with ½ cup cheese and ½ cup sauce. Cover evenly with the remaining ravioli, ¾ cup sauce, and ½ cup cheese.
  5. Cover with aluminum foil and bake until bubbly, about 35 minutes. Remove the foil and bake an additional five minutes. Let stand about five minutes before slicing and serving.
