FREAKIN GOOD Crock Pot Spaghetti!!

Tiffany Springer Recipe

By Tiffany Springer DejaBast

Ok.. my first attempt at making spaghetti in a crock pot. I was limited as to what I had in my cupboards and was amazed at how well this turned out. I've realized that with a limited income one becomes more creative with their recipes. This one happened to be a winner! As a "secret" ingredient I used 1 1/2 cups of Lager (Beer) -- (I didn't tell my Fiance until after he ate it, he hates beer!) -- The next day, I ate some leftovers and could taste a hint of the Lager, its Really Good!

    Vickie, you put everything in the pot, uncooked noodles too. I do stir it occasionally, making sure that all the noodles get evenly cooked and that nothing is sticking to the sides of the crock pot :-)

    You know, I think I might just try this! I have a busy day and love when I can make something in a slow cooker... My worry is that the pasta will turn out too overcooked... I have some mild Italian sausage I think I'll add to it along with the ground beef.... Thanks!
