I used my 6 quart oval Kitchenaid slow cooker.*

Italian sausage: I used a ground mild Italian sausage but if you like it spicy you could opt for hot sausage.

Ravioli: I used a package of frozen ravioli but you could also use a package of fresh ravioli.

Sauce: I used a can of marinara spaghetti sauce. You could get fancy and use a jar of sun dried tomato alfredo or tomato basil sauce or anything that catches your eye in the pasta aisle.

Pepperonis: I used half a package of pepperonis and cut them into quarters. You could also buy a package of the mini pepperonis.

Spinach: I ran out of fresh spinach so I just used a bit of frozen spinach. I just stirred it in and it worked great.
