Big Papi’s Slow Cooker Ravioli Lasagna

1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 pound of sweet Italian Sausage
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 (24 ounce) jars prepared pasta sauce (if you don’t like a lot of sauce you can use one jar)
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 (25 ounce) package frozen cheese & mushroom ravioli

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef and susage, garlic, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in the hot skillet until meat is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease. Stir pasta sauce, Italian seasoning, basil, and oregano into ground beef mixture.

Ladle a generous layer of meat sauce into the bottom of a slow cooker; add a layer of ravioli. Ladle another layer of meat sauce over ravioli layer; alternate with remaining ravioli and meat sauce until all ingredients are used.

Cook on Low for 3 to 5 hours. Sprinkle ravioli mixture with mozzarella cheese and continue cooking until cheese is melted, 45 minutes to 1 hour more.
