4-Ingredient Crock Pot™ Ravioli Lasagna Recipe: A Family Dinner Winner by Heather Holter

4-Ingredient Crock Pot™ Ravioli Lasagna Recipe: A Family Dinner Winner

I see recipes for slow-cooker ravioli lasagna all over the place, so I thought I'd make my own version. Apparently this easy ravioli lasagna recipe was delicious, because my 15-year-old said, "Thank you so much for the ravioli, that stuff was the bomb! You should make it more often!"

This pasta recipe is great when you want a hot dinner, but it's too hot to cook or you will be gone until dinnertime. I did have to use a frying pan to brown the hamburger, but that was easy. The best part? You only need four ingredients for this ravioli lasagna! Here is your short and sweet shopping list: frozen cheese ravioli, ground beef, spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese.

This Italian ravioli dinner is great served with garlic toast and a fresh garden salad. Pack the leftovers (if you have any) for lunch the next day.

Recipe Notes

  • Set slow cooker to warm after four hours to prevent burning.
  • Try this easy recipe with ground turkey instead of ground beef.
  • For more cheesy goodness, add some freshly grated Parmesan cheese to the top.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Brown the ground beef in a skillet and drain. Spread 1/2 cup of the spaghetti sauce on the bottom of the slow cooker.
  2. Do three layers of the following: 1/4 ravioli, 1/3 ground beef, 1/2 cup cheese and 1/2 cup sauce. Top with remaining ravioli, sauce and cheese.
  3. Add 1/2 cup water to the empty spaghetti sauce jar and shake. Pour it around the edges of the ingredients (this adds moisture to prevent chewiness). Cover and cook on low for 4 hours.
