Slow Cooker Ravioli!

Can I just say that I L.O.V.E. pasta almost as much as I do coffee.  I could eat pasta nearly every day, but my husband is not a big fan.  I've had to limit my menus to the few pasta dishes that he does enjoy.  The requirements are that it has to have meat or poultry and and cheese.  This one had both and got a big thumbs up.  =)  


You'll spend about 15 minutes total on this saucy ravioli recipe, but if you leave out the meat or substitute meat ravioli, it will seriously take you less than 5 minutes and dirty only 1 dish.  Boo-ya!  There are very few comfort dishes that you could make this quickly and still be impressed by the result.  


I love to throw this in the crock pot before heading out the door to Sunday morning worship services.   Coming home and having a really good meal ready and waiting is an awesome way to start a lazy Sunday afternoon.  


You may want to keep the ingredients in the freezer and pantry for whenever you don't want to cook and don't want to go out or for when you need to take a meal to sick friend.  That way there are no excuses.  ;)


I hope your family gives this recipe a thumbs up as well!
