Pasta Casseroles
« on: October 22, 2018, 01:55:33 PM »
I made to drop off at a friend's house.  It made 9x13 plus an 8x8 pan.  I left out the half and half.  Dropping off a loaf of bread, salad and cookies to go with it.

It was pretty good.  I also used fresh baby spinach.  I think the directions said cook it uncovered, but the cheese was a little hard so covered seems like a better bet and then take the foil off at the end.

Looks yummy. I feel like I have soooo many pasta recipes and some are similar, but this looks good to bring somewhere or make for someone who needs meals supplied.

Lasagna Soup in the Crock Pot

1 lb bulk Italian sausage, cooked and drained (I used pork, but would probably use turkey next time)
1 large onion, diced
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 T dried oregano
1 T dried basil
1/4 tsp pepper flakes
6 oz tomato paste
28 oz fire roasted tomatoes
2 bay leaves
6 C chicken broth
10 oz lasagna noodles broken into pieces
Ricotta and/or mozzarella cheese for topping

Combine all ingredients except lasagna noodles and cheese in slow cooker.  Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hrs.  During the last 30 minutes add uncooked pasta.  Top with cheese and serve.

This was pretty good.  I have typed the recipe as written in the cook book, but I was worried that the noodles were not going to be done enough by the end of 30 minutes so I tested one noodle early and I was right.  So I ended up turning the crock pot up to high for the last 30 minutes.  There was an occasionally chewy noodle, but I also put the entire box of noodles in because was was I going to do with leftover lasagna noodles.  Based on that I should have increased the chicken broth to 8 cups and probably added another 6 oz of tomato paste.  It was more like a stew than a soup.  But it made a lot, so I froze some for when I need a meal for the kids at some point.
