Slow Cooker Pesto Ravioli


I really and starting to appreciate the simplicity of things.  Setting a new years goal to simplify has been so nice. So today I have a simple ravioli dish for you.  It has 2 main benefits – it is made in the slow cooker (gotta love that) and you only need six ingredients to make it.

I loved having an easy meal to prepare for my family and my family absolutely love this dish.  I was worried that my 2 youngest kiddos would turn their nose up at the pesto and they didn’t.  There was no leftovers from this meal.  It was completely devoured.
