Lasagna is one of our favorite family meals, but making it can be very labor intensive.
But with just a few simple shortcuts, lasagna doesn't have to be a big production.
Start the recipe by making the meat sauce. Brown the ground beef and then combine the browned ground beef, tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, seasonings, and honey in a large skillet. Cook this mixture over medium-high heat for 5 to 10 minutes.
Spray the inside of the slow cooker with cooking spray. Ladle a scoop of the meat sauce into the slow cooker.
Next, add a layer of ravioli on top of the meat sauce.
Add four slices of provolone and mozzarella on top of the ravioli. Add more meat sauce and repeat each layer until all the ingredients are used.
Top everything with a final layer of cheese.
Cook in the crock pot on high for 3 to 4 hours, until a thermometer inserted through the ravioli reaches 165 degrees.
To me, this tastes as good as traditional lasagna and the fact that you can make it in your crock pot makes it a winner in my book!
