Easy Slow Cooker Cheesy Ravioli - Budget Meal

This is a great dish for a cold winter's day or a hot summer day when you don't want the oven on. I used to live in a tiny one-bedroom apartment and on a hot summer day, the worst thing in the world was to have my oven on. This is easy and is also a recipe you could get your teenager to make. :)

Serves: 4


  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 medium sized onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 jar (1lb 8 oz) of spaghetti sauce (Cost $1.00)
  • 1 - 8 ounce can of tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 package (24 ounces) Frozen Cheese Ravioli (1 bag cost me $2.00)
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese (8 ounces)
  • salt and pepper
  1. Cook onion and garlic in oil until onions are soft. 
  2. Pour spaghetti and tomato sauces into 5 - 6 quart slow cooker. Add onions/garlic and Italian seasonings and mix.
  3. Add ravioli and stir. 
  4. Cook on low for approximately 2 hours. Add cheese right before serving.
