My family loves when I make Crock Pot Pizza Pasta. It tastes great, makes great leftovers and tastes so good on a really cold day. I love it because it's full of fresh veggies and it's easy to make.
There are two ways you can do the cheese. You can mix it in with the rest of the ingredients like I did or you can wait until after you've added the penne pasta and pour it over the top, letting it melt over everything. Either way is great, I just like mine all mixed in:) Here's what I use:
1/2 box penne pasta, cooked al dente
1 lb. ground beef, cooked and drained
3 cups (1 1/2 bags) shredded mozzarella cheese
2-24 oz. cans of traditional pasta sauce
1 pkg. mini pepperoni
1 green pepper, chopped
4 oz. mushrooms, sliced
1 med. onion, chopped
2 tsp. Italian Seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Prepare all ingredients and place in Crock Pot, except for the pasta.
Cover and cook on low for 4 1/2 hours.
Add penne pasta and cook on low for an additional 30 minutes.
Serve with Texas Toast or garlic bread. Enjoy!
