Instant Pot Spinach Ravioli With Italian Sausage is a hearty meal that combines frozen spinach ravioli with spinach and Italian sausage within a red sauce. Using an electric pressure cooker turns this dish into a quick and easy one-pot meal.
Hubby loves ravioli. I often get spinach ravioli that I’ll use just for a meal for just him, because it’s his favorite kind of ravioli. Spinach is also one of his favorite vegetables, if not the favorite. I had picked up a large bulk package of sweet Italian sausage and was figuring out different things to make with it. I had the spinach ravioli in the freezer and decided to use the sausage with that. In order to let the dish really get a good spinach flavor, I decided to add spinach to the dish as well. I used just enough red sauce to let the dish cook, not wanting it to be a dish with a lot of sauce or a soup. Hubby absolutely loved the finished dish and has asked me to try to make it often for him. This is a hearty meal that combines frozen spinach ravioli with spinach and Italian sausage within a red sauce. Using an electric pressure cooker turns this dish into a quick and easy one-pot meal. Here’s how I make Instant Pot Spinach Ravioli With Italian Sausage.

Slice the sausage into bite sized pieces.
Return the sausage to the pot.
Place the ravioli on top of the sausage.
Pour the pasta sauce over the sausage, trying to be sure that all of the ravioli is covered.
