Slow Cooker Pesto Ravioli

by Laura

I really am starting to appreciate the simplicity of things.  Setting a new year goal to simplify has been so nice. So, today I have a simple Slow Cooker Pesto Ravioli dish for you.  It has 2 main benefits – it is made in the slow cooker (gotta love that) and you only need six ingredients to make it.

I love having an easy meal to prepare for my family and my family absolutely love this dish.  It did worry me that my 2 youngest kiddos would turn their nose up at the pesto and they didn’t.  Now, there was no leftovers from this meal.  This slow cooker pesto ravioli was completely devoured.

Slow Cooker Pesto Ravioli


  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup pesto
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella, divided
  • 1 (24 oz) jar pasta sauce (I used Kirkland Marinara)
  • 1 (25 oz) pkg. frozen ravioli


  1. In a bowl, stir together the ricotta, pesto, and 1/2 cup parmesan until combined; set aside.
  2. Add 1 cup of the pasta sauce on bottom of slow cooker. Spread to coat the bottom of the slow cooker.
  3. Next, place 1/2 of the bag of frozen ravioli in the slow cooker.
  4. Take 1/2 of the ricotta mixture and spread it on top of the ravioli and the sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the mozzarella.
  5. Repeat layers again (1 cup sauce, remaining frozen ravioli, remaining ricotta, remaining mozzarella).
  6. Spread remaining sauce over top. Cook on low for 3 hours.
  7. Remove lid and add sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup parmesan. Replace lid and cook an additional 30 minutes on low. Serves 6.

If I doubled the recipe, how long do you think I would need to cook?

I would like to try this recipe for Sunday mornings to eat after church. Do you think it would overcook if it had to stay in the slowcooker another hour?
