Most slow cooker recipes take a little effort, whether it is browning the meat, or chopping up vegetables, but my Slow Cooker Sausage and Ravioli is just a few simple ingredients, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, Italian sausage links (you can use mild or spicy whatever you prefer), frozen ravioli, and fresh basil. You can add salt to taste but I usually find it doesn’t need any extra. The Italian sausage is sliced into bite-sized pieces and then added, along with the rest of the ingredients, to the slow cooker. Set the slow cooker to low, and let it cook for 4 hours, or until the sausage is fully cooked.

When you get home at the end of a long day you have a complete slow cooker dinner waiting for you. The diced tomatoes and tomato sauce cook down into a pasta sauce that takes on a great flavor from cooking with the sausage and basil all day. It coats the cheese ravioli and sausage and make a hearty meal that everyone in the family loves. Garnish the Slow Cooker Sausage and Ravioli with a little fresh basil and grated Parmesan and then call everyone to the dinner table and watch them dig in. This is one of those easy weeknight dinners that is so good there are never any leftovers.

What You’ll Need to Make Slow Cooker Sausage and Ravioli:

  • Slow Cooker – I suggest at least a 6 qt. slow cooker for the recipe. Mine is an 8 quart and I love it because it holds so much.
  • Grater – The grated fresh Parmesan at the end really makes a difference!
