Crockpot Pesto Ravioli




Sometimes I wish I could talk to my newly married self 5 years ago. Seriously. If I had known back then you could cook pasta in the Crockpot I would have been ALL OVER that! Wait, not just pasta, FROZEN pasta! Though, I'm not sure they had slow cooker liners back then. I don't want to live in a world without slow cooker liners, how about you?

This dinner is a true family pleaser. The addition of the pesto just takes the flavor to a whole new level. Paul thought it tasted, "restaurant quality." And since he manages one, I personally feel he is highly qualified to make that kind of a judgement. :)



Crockpot Pesto Ravioli

24 oz jar pasta sauce
25 oz frozen ravioli
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup pesto
1 cup shredded mozzarella, divided
3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided



In a medium bowl, combine ricotta, pesto, and 1/2 cup parmesan.



Spread 1 cup spaghetti sauce on bottom of Crockpot. Place 1/2 of the frozen ravioli on top of the sauce.



Spread 1/2 of the ricotta mix on the ravioli. Top ricotta with 1/2 cup mozzarella. Repeat layers again (1 cup sauce, remaining frozen ravioli, remaining ricotta, remaining mozzarella).



Spread rest of sauce over top. Cook on low for 3 hours. Remove lid and add sprinkle 1/4 cup parmesan. Replace lid and cook an additional 30 minutes on low.

  17. I'm wondering how much longer do you think it would take with the recipe doubled? We've made this several times, doubled it once but it didn't turn out as well...

  18. I'm new to the 'Slow Cooker World' but am anxious to jump right in! What is the purpose of the liner, though, and is it necessary? It has already been decided that this will be the recipe to break in our new Crock Pot (yay!) but I could really use some feedback!
