Slow-Cooker Cheesy Ravioli Casserole will feed a crowd.


1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil

1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)

1 large clove garlic, finely chopped

1 can (26 ounces) four cheese-flavored spaghetti sauce

1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

2 packages (25 ounces each) frozen beef-filled ravioli

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 ounces)

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook onion and garlic in oil about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onion is tender. Stir in spaghetti sauce, tomato sauce and Italian seasoning.

Place 1 cup of the sauce mixture in bottom of 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Add 1 package frozen ravioli; top with 1 cup of the cheese. Top with remaining package of ravioli; top with remaining 1 cup cheese. Pour remaining sauce mixture over top.

Cover and cook on low heat setting 5 to 7 hours or until ravioli are tender. Sprinkle with parsley. Serves 12.

Tips: Serve with a loaf of crusty French bread and a tossed green salad.

Italian seasoning is a blend of typical Italian herbs such as thyme, oregano, basil, savory, marjoram, rosemary and sage. Using this blend saves you from adding all these seasonings separately.
