Slow Cooker Ravioli

Now Ravioli isn't usually very time consuming - boil, add sauce, serve, but doing it in the slow cooker, dinner is ready and waiting for you - and after a long day, it is nice to not have to - boil, add sauce, serve - if you don't have to.

Inspiration: Slow Cooker Cheesy Ravioli

We never used the cheese in the picture

Non-Stick Spray
1 Onion, chopped
2 Ribs Celery, chopped
1/2 Green Pepper, chopped
2 Tomatoes, chopped
A few leftover Basil Leaves that needed to be used up
1 Tbsp minced Garlic
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
2 bags frozen Ravioli

1.  Spray crock with non-stick spray.  (You'll be thankful you did after dinner).
2. Add 1 can tomato sauce, basil and 1 bag of ravioli to the crock in that order.

3. Add remaining veggies, garlic and Italian seasoning, in that order.

4. Add remaining bag of ravioli and top with remaining can of sauce.
5. Cook over low heat for 5 - 6 hours and serve.

It was very thick, and the ravioli stuck to itself.

Now, we had left the house, and came home starving, and anticipating this recipe.  Maybe if I had been home, I could have added boiling water to thin it slightly as it cooked, or even shortening the cook time.

It tasted really good - and I will definitely do it again, but next time, a thinner sauce when I'm home to keep an eye on it.
