Pressure Cooker 3 Ingredient Cheesy Ravioli
Sometimes you just need an easy recipe to make for your family for dinner. When you don’t have a lot of time to chop vegetables, or brown meat or follow a bunch of lengthy recipe steps.
For super busy days this recipe for cheesy ravioli made in your Crock-Pot Express Multi-Cooker (or other brand of electric pressure cooker such as an InstantPot) is one of the easiest and quickest recipes that I think you can make.
As the name implies all you need is three ingredients…a bag of frozen cheese ravioli, a jar of your favorite marinara sauce and some shredded mozzarella cheese.
You can use any brand of frozen ravioli you like and any brand of marinara sauce (or you can even use our recipe for Crock-Pot marinara sauce). And, you can shred your own mozzarella cheese or grab a bag of the pre-shredded kind at the grocery store!
Then just layer the ingredients in your electric pressure cooker, close the lid and vent and cook it for just 4 minutes on HIGH.
There will be a little extra time needed to allow the pressure cooker to come up to pressure and then a little time after cooking to release the pressure. But from start to finish you are looking at a quick 30 minute meal.
Serve the cheesy ravioli with a side salad for a great weeknight dinner that the whole family is going to love!

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, you can use any type of frozen ravioli in this recipe. I have made this recipe with Italian sausage filled ravioli and it was fantastic!
This recipe, as written is vegetarian (not vegan because it contains cheese). But if you want to add meat to this dish you can easily do that. Before you start the recipe you will want to cook, brown and crumble 1 pound of ground meat (such as ground beef, ground turkey, or Italian sausage). You can do this either on the stove-top or in the Crock-Pot Express using the BROWN/SAUTE function. Then drain the meat to remove excess cooking fat and layer the cooked meat between the layers of ravioli, sauce and cheese.
No, in this recipe you add the ravioli while they are still frozen.
Yes you can! simply swap out 25 ounces of frozen tortellini for the 25 ounces of frozen ravioli called for in the recipe. Nothing else in the recipe needs to be changed.
