Crockpot Chop Suey

Easy peasy crock pot dinner that’ll have your house smelling good all afternoon, and everyone satisfied at dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 5 bacon strips
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced (I used red, because it was there)
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can water (empty tomato can)
  • 6 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 26 ounce jar prepared pasta sauce
  • 1 16 ounce package elbow macaroni (or something else reasonably small)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional)

Cut the bacon into small pieces. If you have kitchen shears, it’s easy to just cut the bacon into bits over a pan on the stove. Add the beef and onion and cook until the beef is browned. Drain as much grease as possible, then transfer to a 6 quart slow cooker.

Add the pepper, diced tomato, water, garlic, and pasta sauce, and stir in.

Put the lid on the crock pot and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, or high for 4. Stir in the raw pasta and cook on high for 30 minutes, or until the pasta is tender.

Serve sprinkled with cheese.

Sure, I stand in front of doors with my food all the time, that’s normal.

Not too many steps and not much hands-on time for a pretty hearty meal!

My name's Corinne, and I like cake, cookies, and chocolate! Also, non-c-things such as ponies, Star Trek, and biking. (Over the summer, my bike glove tans will probably become pretty glaring in some of these photos.) I'll be sharing my adventures in the kitchen. Expect lots of recipes to have chocolate swapped in to replace other inferior ingredients.
