I can’t tell you how much I absolutely love cooking with my crockpot especially during busy work weeks. Even though I work from home, it’s still really difficult to find the time and energy to cook good meals each evening.
I recently came across this recipe for creamy spaghetti a few months ago on Pinterest. I was skeptical to give it a try because it called for cooking raw spaghetti in the crockpot. I’d never heard of being able to toss unboiled pasta in the crockpot but thought “what the heck, I’ll give it a whirl”. Instead of using spaghetti, I opted to try this recipe with rigatoni pasta.
Let me just mention how unbelievably quick and easy this recipe is. It literally takes 10 – 15 minutes to throw everything together then walk away. I didn’t go back to it until a few hours later, gave it a stir and voila! Instant dinner!
Looking for another easy and fool proof crockpot recipe? Today we’re going to talk about this Crockpot Lasagna that I recently tried out. This recipe could not be any easier and took me only about 15 minutes to assemble. No need to boil your noodles first, just layer the ingredients and go. I used a larger oval sized crockpot for mine but a smaller one will work fine too.
This lasagna is delicious. Be sure you use lots of pasta sauce though cause the noodles really suck it up! I was leery to use the noodles raw but they really plump up and get thoroughly cooked. I ended up with a nice and thick lasagna with lots of gooey cheese. Perfect comfort food for these last remaining cold days, hopefully. Fingers crossed!
Say hello to another fabulous crockpot meal idea! Lately the crockpot has been making my life so much easier. It’s been cold and snowy here in Western PA for over a month now. And nothing feels better on those cold winter days than a warm, no fuss meal. This recipe calls for just a few simple store bought ingredients that you just need to add to the crockpot and walk away.
It takes me about 20 minutes to put this together during the weekend and then I can go back to hiding under my comfy throw and catching up on all of my highly important TV shows. Not really though. I’m addicted to all of the housewives of wherever! I should be ashamed but I’m really not!
