Tried a new Recipe

I tried a new recipe for the crockpot yesterday. Pizza Noodle Crock. It was pretty good. The whole family enjoyed it.

Pizza Noodle Crock

8 oz of lean ground meat
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
26 oz can spaghetti sauce
2 oz turkey pepperoni
1 tsp pizza seasoning
2/3 Smart Taste elbow macaroni
1 cup 2% shredded mozzarella cheese

brown the meat in small skillet with the onions,pepper, and pizza seasoning. Spray 3 quart crockpot with cooking spray. Put a layer of spaghetti sauce in the bottom of crockpot. Place 1/2 of the turkey pepperoni on top of the sauce, then add the browned meat. Pasta goes on top of the meat, and then cover the pasta with the remaining spaghetti sauce. Top with the rest of the pepperoni, then add the cheese. Cook on low for 3 hours.

Serves 5, 294 calories, 10 g fat, 7 g fiber

I didn't have the elbow macaroni when I made this yesterday so I used Healthy Harvest spiral pasta, the calorie count was the same.

This is going into my favs for the crockpot!

Busy day yesterday. Spent most of the day with my mom-in-law. Sarah stopped by then we all went to lunch and did some shopping. Sarah was able to get an outfit for the job interview she has on Monday. Came home made dinner. I did get on the treadmill, but didn't get in a bike ride. To bad as the weather was so nice. 73 degrees! I was rudely awakened by a thunderstorm at 6 am so I lost some sleep, but it really turned into a great day.

Did you precook the pasta or did you put it in uncooked?
