Tiffany's StoryOk.. 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!
favorite spaghetti sauce
black olives (sliced)
1 1/2 c
diced green bell pepper
diced yellow onion
garlic (fresh pressed)
1 1/2 c
spaghetti noodles or favorite pasta
3Add to Crock Pot: Spaghetti sauce, diced can of tomatoes, can of tomato soup, can of mushrooms, can of olives, diced green bell peppers, diced onions, Beef Broth, Beer, Spaghetti noodles (or favorite pasta), Garlic salt, pepper and fully cooked hamburger meat.
Side note: Add pasta 30 minutes before serving, could get too soft if added with all ingredients.

Very nice! It is definitely good eatin' that is for sure! My Fiance wants the spaghetti cooked like this from now on :-)

do you cook the pasta first.. and do you stir it all all during cooking

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!
