This is probably the laziest recipe I’ve ever posted. I made this Saturday evening, after a full day of running errands and being totally exhausted. The last thing anyone wants to do after a long day is worry about dinner. That feeling when you get home and you struggle between whether you’re more hungry than you are tired. I’ve been there. I usually find myself eating some chips or some other not-so-healthy crap. Since this year began though, I’ve been trying to change those unhealthy habits. I eat more organic foods, I do yoga every day, I drink a lot of water, and I’ve been trying to get a lot more rest. All and all I’ve been pretty successful, but still I struggle to find my inner Top Chef after a long day. Anyway, I made this ravioli in about 5 minutes and let the slow cooker do the rest of the work. It’s seriously delicious and with the right amount of cheese you can make it as decadent as you want!
Slow Cooker Ravioli
- crock pot (I use this size crock pot perfect for feeding two)
- 1 16oz jar of pasta sauce
- 1 package ready made ravioli (I used this refrigerated brand not frozen)
- 1 package shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 container whole milk ricotta cheese
- 1 package Gardein meatless meatballs
Layer your ingredients as you would lasagne. Pour about 1/4 of your pasta sauce first. Meatballs second. Ravioli next. Mozarella and ricotta and repeat. Sauce-meatballs-ravioli-cheese Until the slow cooker is full. Cook on low for about 4 hours. Serve with a nice Verdicchio and enjoy!
