Crockpot Ravioli Lasagna

Crock Pot Ravioli Lasagna gives you the taste of lasagna, the ease of the slow cooker, in a toss and go recipe. No Pre-cooking the pasta! Another plus about this dish is the flexibility of ingredients!

I love layering this as I dash out the door in the morning, and come home in the afternoon to the aroma of slow cooked Italian deliciousness.

The trick is to use frozen ravioli's that you don't have to precook at all, you just throw them in frozen! You can use cheese, meat or cheese/spinach ravioli's

I usually make a huge double batch of spaghetti with meat sauce several times a month, and besides pizza subs, this is a great 2nd meal out of the double batch.

This recipe can be made vegetarian or with meat, what ever is best for you. I am starting with my premade meat sauce, but you can use a jar of store bought sauce just as easily. Play around with it!

For the vegetable layer you have options! I used mushrooms and yellow squash here (which is a favorite of mine, but you can do onions, peppers, ... what else????

Upcycled Clothes Pin Bag

This upcycled clothes pin bag is not only cute and functional, it also only took about 20 minutes to do. (And I didn't use a sewing machine!)  To hang on clothes line, just hook the shoulder staps over the line and refasten the straps.  Then just reach into the bag to grab your pins!

My hubby is rebuilding my line, so as soon as it's done I'll snap a photo for you on the line!


 Here's how I did it:

Bought a pair of childs denim overalls for $1 at a thrift store.

Cute off the legs of the overalls.

Turned the overalls inside out.

Turned up cut edge all the way around to my desired size for the bag.

Straight stitched across the bottom sewing the two sides together.

Turned it inside out.

Bag done.
