The secret to making this lazy day lasagna is substituting cheese ravioli for the traditional lasagna noodles and ricotta cheese! The end result is the same great taste with a fraction of the work!
Simply layer spaghetti sauce, ravioli, ground sausage, and cheese in the slow cooker and turn it on, it’s that simple! Serve it up with a side of Pesto Parmesan Garlic Bread and you’ve got yourself a meal!
Tips for Making Lasagna with Ravioli
A few simple tips make this recipe perfection!
- Choose a high-quality marinara sauce to ensure the best flavor.
- Feel free to choose a different type of frozen ravioli, spinach and cheese or meat and cheese filled both work just as well! Just make sure it has some cheese inside so that you get that ricotta-like flavor.
- Use at least a 6-quart slow cooker for this recipe, it makes a big batch!
