Instructions

Cook the Beef Mixture:

  • Place a large skillet over medium heat, add the oil and wait for it to shart shimmering.
  • Once hot, add the beef, cook unmoved for 3 minutes, to get a nice sear on it. After that, start breaking it apart with a wooden spoon and cook until no longer pink and nicely browned. Drain grease.

  • Add salt and pepper to taste.

Assemble:

  • Add some of the sauce to the bottom of a 6-quart crockpot, just to cover it.
  • Then add a layer of frozen ravioli, top with a layer of mozzarella cheese.
  • Repeat with the remaining ingredients, distribute them in a way to end with the meat sauce on top.
  • Then top with the remaining mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese on top.
  • Cook on the Low setting for 4 hours.
  • Turn off the slow cooker and let it sit for about 15-20 minutes before serving.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley when serving.
