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.

Ravioli in the Slow Cooker
  • 2 bags frozen ravioli
  • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 6 oz can tomato paste
  • 1 small onion, diced (optional)
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • ½ tsp. sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup Mozzarella, shredded
  1. Pour the frozen ravioli into the slow cooker.
  2. Stir the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, onion, garlic and seasonings together in a bowl. Pour over the ravioli and stir to coat all the ravioli with sauce.
  3. Cook on high for 3 hours or low for 5 hours.
  4. About 20 minutes before you're ready to eat, sprinkle the ravioli with Mozzarella.

    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?

    • It works great with jarred sauce! Enjoy!

    • It comes out fine with store bought sauce, but most of the mass produced sauces in the stores have high fructose corn syrup in them. I like to stay away from that. It’s a much healthier meal if you make it as stated. But that’s just me. If you look hard enough, you might be able to find a healthy sauce somewhere.

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

  11. Can you use meat ravioli or is it better to just use cheese? My husband likes meat with everything, too…so I also like the idea of adding the meatballs…
