I’m not one for following a recipe – it just isn’t my thing. But I love looking at various recipes on Pinterest and brainstorming ways to modify the recipe to suit my family’s taste preferences.Last week, I decided to combine recipes for Creamy Crockpot Spaghetti and Lasagna (or at least what these “looked” like in my head), and I threw together a new recipe – Crockpot Pizza Pasta Bake.
Crockpot Pizza Pasta Bake
What I love about this “recipe” is that you can totally tailor it to fit your family’s taste preferences (or whatever ingredients you happen to have on hand)!
1lb of small pasta pieces (I used two partial boxes of various sized shells)
24oz jar of pasta sauce
12oz of water (I filled my pasta sauce jar 1/2 full)
pizza toppings (I used ground beef and mushrooms – it’s what I had on hand)
shredded cheese (I used mozzarella)
- Mix all ingredients except cheese together in a crockpot.
- Cook on HIGH 2-3 hours (or until pasta is cooked al dente).
- Stir occasionally.
- Top with shredded cheese and serve.
What are your family’s favorite pizza ingredients?
