Slow-Cooker Beef Ravioli is an easy, delicious and economical comfort food for Fall or Winter

This Slow-Cooker Beef Ravioli is obviously a mock recipe, as I have not used actual Ravioli pasta in the dish. I used Farfalle (Bow Tie) pasta instead. But, it tastes just like the real thing, only easier and more delicious.

I do not add raw pasta to the slow-cooker in the beginning but rather add cooked pasta later on in the recipe, as I have found that the pasta keeps up the shape better this way.

The dish is super creamy and one of the best comfort pasta dinner recipes I have tried in the slow-cooker to date. It is also a very economical dish as it serves 6 adults easily.

And if you add another 2 cups of Pasta and an additional can of Tomato Puree, the dish is more than enough for 8 – 9 adult servings.

A little frying in the beginning (you can cook the Pasta whilst busy with this) and after that it is basically a dump and cook affair, which is always a bonus.

Towards the end of the cooking time, the Pasta, Spinach and Cheeses are stirred in, re-heated and dinner is ready.

We never have a side dish (vegetable or salad) with the Beef Ravioli, as it is rich and very filling, but it is up to you if you would prefer a little something on the side.

An additional sprinkling of Parmesan is also quite delightful ! I leave that up to my family, some like some extra Parmesan, whereas I am happy with the dish as is from the slow-cooker.
