Ravioli in the Slow Cooker

This is so good and so easy!  I think I actually like it better than cooking it on the stove.  And it’s perfect for a day when you have a few minutes to pull dinner together in the afternoon.  It only cooks about 3 hours (you can stretch it to about 5 if you cook on low).  I love having dinner ready at dinner time, without doing any cooking right then.

I completely forgot to take photos of the finished dish, so you’ll have to make do with this ingredient photo.

I found the recipe at Crystal & Co. She used a jar of spaghetti sauce, but I didn’t have any, so I made up a quick homemade version.  The hands-on prep is still super quick.

    I’ve never made ravioli. I think I’ll add this one to next week’s menu.

  3. This looks so good, and the sauce sounds excellent. Such a good simple recipe – the only way to go!!! I would throw in some frozen meatballs for my husband, but otherwise keep everything else the same. Thanks for a really easy & quick recipe.

  4. GREAT recipe Tiffany!! This is right up my alley & I’m sure I’ll make numerous times!! Thanks sooo much for sharing & making dinner planning a little easier :)

  5. You rock Tiffany. Thanks for giving my recipe a try and taking your own spin on it.

    Is crockpot ravioli amazingly simple, or what? Always a mommy solution.

    I’m loving the simplicity of this recipe! We love this cheese ravioli, but I don’t always time it out on the stove just right and it can fall apart if they get overcooked. I also love the suggestion to add frozen meatballs! My husband loves meat with each meal, so this would be an easy to satisfy him as well. Thanks, Tiffany! :-)

  7. I just happened to have ravioli in the freezer and needed a quick meal due to our football schedules. I was so happy to see this, I threw it in before we left and when we came home we had a nice warm meal…thanks so much :)

  8. Oops, I think you forgot to add tomato paste to the ingredients. I can’t wait to try this!

    • Suzanne, thanks. I added the tomato paste. I made this myself and used my blog to remember what I’d done, but I didn’t notice that. I also noticed I left out the onion and garlic in the recipe, so I edited for that too. Sheesh! I drive myself crazy sometimes!

    can you make this with jarred spaghetti suace if you have it on hand or will it turn our funky?

  10. I found this on Pintetest. I have it in the slow cooker now. We will enjoy it when we get home from church.
