Instant Pot Ravioli

I love me some cheese stuffed ravioli. If I could convince the kids to love it as much as I do, we would have it weekly in our house. It’s quick, easy and pretty darn affordable, especially since I figured out how to cook it in the Instant Pot. Tonight’s dinner cost about $12 and we have left overs for lunch tomorrow.

You don’t need a ton of stuff either, just hamburger, your favorite spaghetti sauce and a bag of frozen ravioli.Instant Pot Ravioli To begin toss your hamburger in your instant pot and push saute.

  1. Sounds so simple! Quick question … was the ravioli defrosted or did you put it in frozen? Thanks!

  2. How tasty was it? It seems a bit basic when it comes to the sauce.

    • My family loves it. We make it every 2 weeks or so. I dont buy jarred spaghetti sauce, we only use diced tomatoes, even for spaghetti.

    Mmmmmm delish!

  4. Michelle says:

    My kids liked this but it does NOT need an entire 28oz can of water – I had to boil mine down quite a bit after it was done, and it took forever to get to pressure with all that water in there. Go with the recommendation in the pics – add water to JUST cover the ingredients if they are pressed down. I’d guess a 1/2 can would do the trick (if that). Otherwise, thumbs up.

  5. Mine is cooking right now. Looking forward to eating in 10 minutes. It’s smelling amazing while I finish getting the salad ready.

  6. I tried it tonight with spinach and mozzarella cheese raviolis, very good. With the leftover I have a few lunches in the freezer for later. Rather than using the IP to brown the hamburger I used a frying pan simply for the ease of draining the grease.

  7. Hélène says:

    We eat ravioli with just spaghetti sauce, no meat. So its even cheaper lol

  8. Doesn’t the water make the sauce runny or watery

  9. thinking of trying this ….I’m new to IP…if I don’t want the meat do I just skip and make the ravioli as stated in in the recipe?

  10. Jan Lamothe says:

    Frozen raviolies will release more water yes and
    make it more juicy?

  11. What temp do you saute the hamburger on?

  12. Thanks. I’m trying this tonight. Our local store had a sale on frozen rav and I had every intention of making them in the IP until driving home, I started thinking about how they don’t recommend dairy in IP so I was hoping to find advice online. Thank you for relieving my mind. I’ll be adding lots of veggies along with some tomatoes. Yum. Can’t wait.
