I’m not a spaghetti person. You will never see it on this blog because – I really quite loathe it. I don’t like the sauce, I don’t like the noodles, I don’t like it at all.

But I like fettuccine, I like linguini, penne, tortellini, macaroni… YUM. Ravioli though, is definitely one of my favorite forms of pasta. Pillows stuffed with creamy cheesy, spinachy, meaty goodness. Yes pleeeeease.

Now this sauce? It is spoon from the pan worthy. Meaning, half of it ends up straight inside my belly – no pasta involved – because it is so darn good. The roasted red pepper flavors, tomato, a little cream cheese, some Italian seasoning…

I luv it.

I actually made this recipe for the first time last summer and fell head over heels for it but I hated the photographs – they didn’t do it justice – so I put it in my Re-do File and sort of forgot about it until last week. I made it again and I swear, by some miracle, it was even better than the first time I made it. This time I invited my parents over and my mother who is very picky became and instant fan.

And my father? Well he adored it. And he hates cheese. And Italian food. <—– the audacity! And still, loved my roasted red pepper ravioli. That my friends, is a miracle. A small, foodie miracle but a miracle nonetheless.

  • 18 ounces ravioli (I used spinach & cheese stuffed ravioli)
  • 1 12-ounce jar roasted red peppers drained and roughly chopped
  • 1 30-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1-2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • fresh basil (optional)


  • Cook ravioli according to package instructions. (If you don't have instructions, boil for 4-5 minutes, drain, and set aside) Preheat oven to 400.
  • In a medium sauce pan, combine roasted red pepper, tomato sauce, garlic, cream cheese, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Cover and simmer over medium-low heat for 10 minutes. Uncover, stir until cream cheese is incorporated.
  • Spread 1 cup of the sauce in the bottom of a large casserole dish or 9x13 inch pan. Layer the ravioli in the pan. Pour remaining sauce over the ravioli. Top with the parmesan cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly. Garnish with fresh basil if desired, serve warm.

i tried making this tonight with limited success. The cream cheese never really melted into the sauce. Some of it did but I got a lot of cottage cheese looking chunks. I kept turing up the heat and cooking a little longer but it never really melted. In anycase, by the time I decided to use the sauce as is, the ravioli was all stuck together in the collander. Also, it was tooooo Salty!! If I was going to do this again I first would way less salt. I would try bring the sauce to a boil first then turn down to medium and hope that would melt the cheese completely. And!! I only when I was happy with the sauce would I cook the ravioli so it all would be ready when I got ready to put it together and bake it.

    Michael- sorry that it didn’t turn out quite right! I haven’t had that issue myself- but I agree on turning the heat down a little and letting it melt next time. 🙂

I think the sauce sounds really good, which is why I’m going to make this tonight, but I don’t get casseroling and baking ravioli. I’m just serving the ravioli directly with the sauce.
