Made this Monday for a working lunch. Overall, very good, I did make some changes. I added some diced spicy Italian sausage, but used cheese ravioli. Just not fond of beef ravioli that much. Too much tomato for me, so I stuck with a very good quality pasta sauce and some Italian diced tomatoes for a little texture. It said red peppers ... to me that is red bell peppers. Red pepper flakes are completely different. I used 1/2 diced red bell pepper, which is sweet and a pinch of red pepper flakes. I also used 1/2 cup white wine and 1/2 cup beef broth for a little white wine for a kick, just a touch and plenty of salt and pepper. No reason to use water when you can add more flavor with broth or wine. The cheese I served at the end once served in a family style bowl. No reason to add it early. Two 2 minutes on top the ravioli and it was melted. I also used some fresh rated pecorino along with the mozz. I put the sausage on the bottom and then the ravioli. I think overall it was a good dish, but it definitely for me, needed some additional flavors and texture to the dish. But a great idea and the ravioli did turn out very good, not mushy, very well cooked. Four 4 hours was just right, even with the sausage. Thx

Not only was the recipe delicious (I used Reggio's frozen meat ravioli from my grocer), but it was the easiest dish I've ever made! My boyfriend said this one's definitely a dish to repeat. (I should think so - he had three helpings!)

This was fast and easy to make up. I cut the recipe in half using Karen's My Mama Iuliucci's "Don't Skip a Step" Spaghetti Sauce for the pasta sauce. I omitted the red peppers and Italian spices as my spaghetti sauce was well seasoned. I was in a rush, so I had it on high for 1-1/2 hours, then dropped it to low for 1/2 hour. The pasta was cooked and hot....maybe the cheese was a bit on the stringy side, but still enjoyable. I froze the remainder ravioli and tomato sauce for a later date. This would have feed 4 people easily! Thanks for the posting!

This was so easy. It took me longer to print out the recipe then to prepare it! It was so nice to come home and have dinner ready and waiting. I did add some more cheese and we add parmesan cheese after it was served - that gave it a really nice flavor. Wonderful recipe, and we will be making it again.

This is the best recipe for sunday afternoons after church! It was so fast to put together. The ravioli was just right and didn't taste starchy at all! I used chicken ravioli, instead of the beef and everyone loved it! Thanks so much!

just what i needed for sunday dinners after church. sooo easy and yummy. i used 2 pkgs of frozen deli ravioli and substituted canned chopped tomatos in juice since i was out of sauce. i used 1/2 t. red peppers and a cup of nice parmesan cheese. the house smelled wonderful, too! the only problem i had was the ravs stuck and burnt to the bottom (but no burnt flavor)on the crock. i had it a bit higher than low and i think that's why it burnt.

Very simple and tasty! Only used 1/2 a teaspoon of red pepper gave it just enough kick for use. Didn't use the Mozz used fresh Parm and Romano cheese instead. It was very good! Thanks colorboyswife

Tasty and easy. I doubled the amount of ravioli (3-cheese and spinach & cheese)and didn't use the pepper flakes. I took it to a party yesterday and brought home a very clean crock pot. We will definitely be making this again. Thanks.
