Crock Pot Ravioli

This is a versatile, easy, and family friendly recipe.  Enjoy!

Crock Pot Ravioli
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 jar (26 oz.) pasta sauce
1 can (15 oz.) tomato sauce
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 cups shredded mozzarella
26 oz. frozen ravioli

In skillet, saute garlic and onion.  Add pasta sauce, tomato sauce, and Italian seasoning.  Spray crock pot with non-stick cooking spray and layer in ingredients as follows: 1 cup sauce, 1/2 ravioli, 1/2 cheese, 1 cup sauce, remainder of ravioli, remainder of cheese, remainder of sauce.  Cook on low for 4 hours.

Some variations:

  • I used cheese ravioli so my vegetarian daughter would eat it.  You could certainly use beef ravioli or any variety of frozen tortellini as well.
  • You could also brown some ground beef or sausage with the garlic and onion if you prefer a meat sauce.
  • Fresh pasta (such as Buitoni) would probably work, too, but I would suggest cutting the cooking time down to 3 hours.
  • This made plenty for my family of five, but you could double the recipe for a crowd.  (Just make sure your crock pot is big enough!)
