How to Store and Reheat Slow Cooker Ravioli Lasagna

Storing leftover ravioli lasagna is simple. Just put it into the fridge in an airtight container. It should stay fresh for 2-3 days. To reheat the leftovers, you can add them back to the slow cooker and reheat low and slow or pop them in the microwave – your choice. 

Variations for Ravioli Lasagna 

Once you’ve made Crock Pot Ravioli Lasagna a few times, you may be looking for a way to switch up your flavors. Here are a few ideas to spark some creativity:

  • Change up your pasta sauce flavors. Your local grocery store will sell everything from marinara to tomato basil or four kinds of cheese. Changing the flavors in the sauce will add variety, for sure.
  • Use different ravioli. Maybe you have a vegetarian in your family or maybe you just want to add a little more nutrition to your meals. Try portabella and goat cheese ravioli, spinach, and ricotta ravioli, or butternut squash ravioli then omit the meat, if needed.
  • Use different meat. Instead of beef, try Italian sausage! You can use mild or hot, depending on your preferences.

FAQ

What Sides Go with Crockpot Ravioli Lasagna?

Who doesn’t love bread? It goes with every meal, but especially Italian dishes. Garlic Bread is an obvious choice. You can’t go wrong.

A loaf of French bread or Italian bread is also a great option. Whether made from scratch, bought at the store, baked, or fresh, plain bread (with or without butter!) is an option that can stretch in quantity easier than individual garlic bread slices.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts is a simple side dish that is packed with flavor and nutrition. A salad is another nutritious option that offers lots of versatility for your picky eaters. 

Can I leave out the meat?

You can! If you don’t want to add in the meat, just leave it out! The cheese ravioli and sauce will still provide a delicious flavor and taste! 

What other ingredients can you add to ravioli lasagna cooked in the crockpot? 

If you want to add in some veggies, to do! Onions are a great idea, as are mushrooms. Even though those aren’t “traditional” lasagna ingredients, they’re mild enough vegetables that they’ll be a great flavor enhances. 

I hope you are able to give this Crock Pot Ravioli Lasagna a try and that it becomes a family favorite.

    Making it for the second time tonight. We winter down in southern Texas in our coach, so this dish is easy, filling and tastes so good. We always get at least two dinners from it. First time making it I added my own little touch by adding small dollops of cottage cheese on top of meat sauce, it turned out great! I will continue to make this!
