Review: Crock Pot Ravoili

Night 4: Crock Pot Ravoili

This recipe is fairly basic, meaning you just dump a bag of frozen ravoli into a pot with some spaghetti sauce and let cook. You can leave it on low or turn it up to high... but here's the thing, I'm not sure if I left it on low for too long or chose a bad combination of products but this dish turned out to be a total waste. No one would eat it.

I used 2 bags of rosetto ravoili and 2 cans of del monte mushroom spaghetti sauce for a total cost of 1.30 after coupons which equaled to a whopping .13 a serving! My lowest yet!! However it wasn't anything we enjoyed eating....or should I say didn't eat at all!

I think this dish would have been better off having been baked with some added mozarella and parmesan cheese. In the future, I will attempt it that way, but in the crock pot it turned into a kind of paste. Thumbs down for this one and a miss for hillbilly housewife.

    I love crock pot recipes!! Full time Military, full time wife and a mother of a 3 year old and a new born, the crock pot is my best friend!!! Anywa, my guess is because it was pasta. I'm very weary of leaving noodles/pasta in a crock pot for too long. I've never used del monte sauce but love rosetto ravioli. If your famliy likes meat sauce I'd say put the sauce and meat on low then about a half hour before you're ready to eat, drop the ravioli in. Then they won't over cook and if you have the chance give them a stir so they won't get gooey and clump together. Just a thought! I've never tried ravioli in the crock pot, but it'd be great if we could find a combination that works!

    I just posted a wonderful crock pot recipe I hope you try! I know what its like to be busy like that! I'm also a military wife, with 3 kids, a dog and a full time job! Somebody slap me!!

    That is a great idea on the ravoili, I think I can give that a try in the future. I might even make my own pasta sauce from scratch this time if i'm feeling so dandy- just to spice it up!
