Crock Pot Pizza Pasta





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:


Ingredients

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








Directions

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!

  6. It must be some kind of sign. I've been finding so many good recipes for the kind of food we'll eat (and can afford). We're getting kinda tired of the same one pot meals over and over again so finding this recipe is a happy happening. So glad you shared it. I'm gonna print it out right away so I don't forget and go show it to the hubs who does all the cooking. I'm just the consultant, recipe finder.
    It's really cold here western CO so we could use a good hot meal.
