March Madness Day 5: Slow Cooker Ravioli Casserole

Makes 4-6 servings

1 lb gold'n plump ground chicken
2 garlic cloves, minced
pinch onion powder
pinch garlic salt
8 oz tomato sauce
1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained
3/4 tsp Italian seasoning
3 oz frozen spinach, thawed and pat to dry with paper towels
1 1/2 cups whole grain shells, uncooked
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese

Brown chicken in skillet with garlic, onion powder and garlic salt.  Pour into slow cooker.  Add in remaining ingredients and stir to combine.  Cover and cook on LOW for 3-4 hours, or until noodles are cooked through.

Cooking uncooked pasta in the slow cooker?  Yes you can.  Just be careful not to cook too long or it'll get mushy (using whole wheat pasta helps with that).  3 stars.


  1. Is that frozen chopped spinach or leaf spinach? Couldn't tell from the picture but my guess was chopped. Yes?

  2. yes, chopped. thanks for the clarification.
