We are always looking for a recipe that is quick to put together and will satisfy our son. So anything with pasta and sauce will do for him. This recipe can be put together mid day and be ready when you walk in the door after work. Either my hubby or I will come home during our lunch time and pull this recipe together, because of how easy this is. Your basically just making a quick sauce and letting the pasta cook in it without boiling.
2 bags frozen ravioli, preferably beef and cheese flavored
1 (28 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
1 (6 oz.) can tomato paste
1 cup water
1 small onion, diced
3 tsp. minced garlic
3 tsp. Italian seasoning
salt & pepper, to taste
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
Parsley, for presentation
Pour the frozen ravioli into your slow cooker lined with a crock pot bag ( for easy cleanup)
In a medium bowl, stir together the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, water, onion, minced garlic, Italian seasoning and salt & pepper. Pour sauce over the frozen ravioli and stir to coat.
Cover and cook on low for about 3 to 4 hours. (Only you know how your crockpot cooks. Mine is 24 years old and always takes less time than any recipe states)
About 10 minutes before serving, sprinkle the ravioli with the shredded mozzarella cheese.
Place the cover back on the slow cooker and let the cheese melt.
