Randy's Slow Cooker Ravioli Lasagna

Rated as 4.48 out of 5 Stars

"A fantastic way to enjoy lasagna without all the fuss! I thought using frozen ravioli already filled with cheese instead of layering layers of noodles and cheese would make a great dish so easy. It all comes together; just scoop it out, serve with a salad, and enjoy."

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef, garlic, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in the hot skillet until meat is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease. Stir pasta sauce, Italian seasoning, basil, and oregano into ground beef mixture.
  2. Ladle a generous layer of meat sauce into the bottom of a slow cooker; add a layer of ravioli. Ladle another layer of meat sauce over ravioli layer; alternate with remaining ravioli and meat sauce until all ingredients are used.
  3. Cook on Low for 3 to 5 hours. Sprinkle ravioli mixture with mozzarella cheese and continue cooking until cheese is melted, 45 minutes to 1 hour more.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Using two jars of pasta sauce yields a much richer product. If you don't like as much sauce, you can use a single jar. The seasonings can be adjusted to your tastes. I prefer a generous amount.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

I liked the concept & my son & husband loved the dish. I just prefer my lasagna with more texture & this one turned out a bit too soggy for me.

Yummy! Followed the recipe and it turned out fantastic. Love it when you don't have to read 15+ reviews with each one telling you a different way of altering the recipe. With this recipe you don...

I used half ground beef/half ground sausage and a homemade marinara and I omitted the additional salt. I was able to put this together fairly quickly (and fairly cheaply as well because all of t...

Used a 24-oz jar of Classico® Tomato and Basil sauce and a 12-oz container of my homemade marinara that I always keep on hand in the freezer. I'll admit that I'm not a huge slow cooker fan, but...

This recipe is delicious. The whole family loved it. I did add frozen thawed spinach that I squeezed access water out of to the meat sauce. I also substituted ground turkey in place of the ...

This is a great recipe for this nights where you need to do something about dinner but can't be at home to cook it. I keep cooked ground beef in my freezer so this was easy to pull together. I...

Very good and VERY easy. I used 4 jars of pasta sauce and 30 ounces of raviloi. This does make a lot of food, but the leftovers should reheat well. I will be making this often.

I really like this recipe!! It just barely fit into my tiny crock pot (I'd recommend using a 6 qt if possible). I didn't thaw the ravioli first because I didn't have the time to, and it turned o...
