Parent teacher conferences were last week and this is the meal I came home to! We just went out and bought a new crockpot. By went out and bought, I mean I logged onto amazon and had it shipped to my house in two days. It is wifi capable, which means it works with the wifi and I can change it from high to low or keep warm. I’m so sick of having amazing meals that are ruined by overcooking the meat. Sometimes I just don’t get home in time to turn it down and then I’m upset, well not anymore! This recipe was incredibly easy and delicious! Enjoy!

  1. Sounds perfect. When my vegetarian grandchild comes to visit next weekend, I’ll try it–substituting soy crumbles for the meat. Bet she’ll love it when it’s hot and waiting when we get back from our shopping trip.

  2. How many servings does this make? I am on Weight Watchers and would love to make this for my hubby and myself to eat this week or next.

  3. This is great! The first time we put frozen ravioli in the crockpot, the second time l thawed ravi first. The thawed kind of fell apart. Will not bother will defrosting next time. Kids have begged for this every week. Thank you!

  4. I’d like to hear more about your crock pot! I asked for one at Christmas..but santa didn’t deliver it..so, in the search for one!
    Thanks!

    1. you will love it if you get a crockpot! It can make meal preparation so much easier. You throw things in and dinner is served!

    2. Check Dollar Stores or Wal-Mart for less expensive ones….they are a godsend in the winter and year-round if you have a busy schedule or are like me and have health issues that sometimes limit the time that you can be up and in the kitchen but still want to cook a real meal!

  5. I saw your ravioli meal on your Pinterest site it looks very yummy. Could you please tell me the brand name and type of crockpot you got that is WiFi compatible. Thanks. I pray you are having a wonderful weekend.

  6. Could it be prepped and refrigerated over night and cook the following day or would the noodles soak up too much sauce/liquid overnight??

  7. Someone above mentioned she thawed the raviolis once and they got mushy…but how difficult would it be to stir them in to the crock pot mixture the next morning! Still easy peasy!!
