This easy casserole gives a delicious basil pesto flavor to what is essentially an easy version of lasagna. Switch up the flavors by using different ravioli fillings or even throw in some fresh baby spinach with the spaghetti sauce.
Sides that work well with Pesto Ravioli: spinach salad, steamed or sautéed green vegetables, and grilled vegetables.
