Baked Ravioli with Pesto Creamy Sauce

Thanks for Sharing!

Baked Ravioli with Pesto Creamy Sauce is a great, easy weeknight dinner recipe. If you’ve been following my blog for a while you know I love pesto sauce. I’ve shared lots of different pesto recipes over the years like my Homemade Pesto Sauce and Creamy Pesto Sauce Chicken Lasagna Rollups with Garlic Basil Sauce. This ravioli dish is a one-pan dinner, which I personally think is awesome. Add some French bread and a salad and you’ve got a great meal your family will love.

Picture this: pillowy pockets of ravioli smothered in a luscious creamy pesto sauce, baked to perfection. Are you drooling yet? Because I certainly am!

Making the Creamy Pesto Sauce

I used a baking dish that is about 8″x 10″ for this recipe, but you could easily use a 9″ x 13″ baking pan.

Prepping creamy pesto sauce

Spray the casserole dish well with nonstick spray and add in your cream of chicken soup, pesto sauce, and milk. You can make your own homemade pesto with my recipe here: HOMEMADE PESTO SAUCE or you can use storebought. Pesto sauce has such a great flavor! It’s a delicious sauce with fresh basil, garlic, parmesan cheese, pine nuts, and olive oil. If you wanted to make your recipe even richer you could substitute heavy cream for the milk.

Don’t you love one-pan recipes! No extra bowls to wash!

Pesto sauce mixed together for raviolis

Whisk everything together in the dish until combined.  Add your refrigerated cheese ravioli to the dish and toss everything around until it’s all coated. You could use any refrigerated ravioli you prefer, spinach ravioli would be delicious with the pesto too. You can find ravioli in most grocery stores’ refrigerated section.

Can you bake ravioli instead of boiling?

YES!!! You can just add the fresh ravioli to this dish – no-boil needed! So you saved yourself needing to wash a pot too! This recipe literally takes just minutes to put together before putting it in your oven.

Bake and you’ll have this great pesto pasta dish ready for your family.

Can you bake frozen ravioli instead of boiling?

Yes, you can use frozen ravioli! Just add ten minutes to the bake time in the recipe below if you use ravioli that you just pulled out of your freezer.

Other Options

  • add some bite-sized cooked chicken for a pesto chicken vibe and to add some more protein to your dish.
  • frozen peas are a great addition to add some veggies
  • baby spinach – you can add a couple cups to the pesto mixture before adding the raviolis.

    I was super impressed with this recipe. It has a very mild pesto flavor and the chicken soup gives it a “meatiness” without the meat! I used organic cream of chicken soup (yes, it’s out there!) and spinach/ricotta fresh pasta from Costco. It was very saucy but soooooo yummy. It was a perfect complement to grilled strip steaks and asparagus. Thank you!
