Crock Pot Cheesy Ravioli Casserole

Thanks to the wonderful world of Pinterest I have run across a million and one recipes I want to try. I'm a very picky eater, so I pin a lot of recipes that look great but I'm scared to try them. I don't know why, I guess the thought of spending money on something and possibly not enjoying it maybe, I don't know.

Well, a few months back I ran across a Crock Pot Cheesy Ravioli Casserole  and I have been wanting to try it ever since. I love my Crock Pot and I love making pot roast, pulled pork and soup in it. But, I have never really tried anything different. I did change the recipe a little for us, I thought 2 jars of sauce and 2 bags of frozen ravioli would be to much for just the two of us, so I cut the recipe in half.

1 Tablespoon Oil
Garlic Powder
1 Jar Four Cheese Pasta Sauce (I had Ragu Parmesan and Romano on hand)
1/2 Teaspoon Italian Seasoning
2 Cups Mozzarella Cheese (We love cheese so I kept the two cups!)
1/4 Small Onion Chopped
1/2 Can Tomato Sauce
1 (25 oz) Frozen Beef Ravioli (Where have these been all my life, I've never bought them before now)

I sprayed my crock pot with Pam so it wouldn't be a mess to clean. In a large skillet I cooked my chopped onion in oil until it was transparent.

Then I added my Ragu, Tomato Sauce, Garlic Powder and Italian Season to the skillet and cooked it until it bubbled.

Then I started the layers in the crock pot - first a layer of sauce:

Then a layer of ravioli still frozen:

Then a cup of cheese - to be honest I didn't measure the cheese, I used a handful until it looked good and covered:

Then I repeated layer 1 through 3:

Cooked it on low for 6 hours.

It was actually really good even though this picture doesn't show it. We paired it with garlic bread and a small salad. The hubs said "it's good" and when I asked if he would have it again he said "yeah" - such a talker my Mr. Then he laughed and said "don't quote me on your internet thing" haha. Gotta love him!

One Pinterest recipe down just 999,999,999+ more to go :) Side note: I really wish Blogger and Word would recognize Pinterest as a word because I hate it trying to auto correct me all the time!

Have you tried a new recipe lately?
