1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F/Gas Mark 6).

2. Cook the ravioli for 3-4 minutes in a large pot of boiling salted water, then drain well. Arrange half of the ravioli in the bottom of an ovenproof dish and cover with half the tomato & basil pasta sauce. Add a layer of prosciutto slices and then repeat with the remaining ravioli, tomato sauce and prosciutto. Cover with the mozzarella and sprinkle the Parmesan on top.

3. Bake the lasagne in the oven for 15 minutes, then quickly flash under the grill until the mozzarella and parmesan are bubbling and golden. Garnish with a few basil sprigs and serve straight to the table with a separate bowl of salad.
