Crock Pot Ravioli Lasagna

So now that this thing called “school” has invaded our lives, our Tuesdays and Thursdays are a nightmare. School, violin, soccer…we don’t get home until almost 8:00pm. This recipe was a lifesaver yesterday and everyone liked it so much they had seconds.

1 pound ground beef, turkey or chicken (browned and drained)
1 (28-ounce) jar prepared pasta sauce
25-30 frozen cheese or meat ravioli
2 cups Italian blend shredded cheese
2 tablespoons warm water

Use a 4-quart slow cooker. After browning the meat in a skillet, drain well and add the pasta sauce (save the jar!) to the meat in your saute pan. Stir to combine.

Scoop a large spoonful of meat sauce and spread into the bottom of an empty slow cooker. Add a layer of frozen ravioli. Then add another layer of meat sauce. Continue layering until you run out of ravioli and sauce. Sprinkle cheese evenly all over the top.

Put 2 tablespoons of water into the empty pasta sauce jar, and shake. Pour this water over the top of your “lasagna.”

Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours, or on high for about 4. Your lasagna is done when the ravioli is tender and the filling is heated through.

Did I change anything? I didn’t, but I think the next time I make it I am going to use Italian sausage instead of ground turkey.

What did the family think? Everyone had seconds! What’s not to like about ravioli lasagna? 🙂

    Sounds like a great back to school recipe when everyone is going different directions. I’ll try it next week. Also, we had the baked french toast with blueberries for the first day of school, and it was a sweet treat. Planning on trying more recipes this year!
