A simple and inexpensive dish comprised of ground beef, cream of mushroom soup, shredded Cheddar or mozzarella, elbow macaroni, milk and seasonings simmering in a crock pot. Another recipe from Slow-Cooker Savings in the Gooseberry Patch Dinners on a Dime cookbook.
- Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker; mix well. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours, or until macaroni is tender.
The taste is excellent, however, next time I make this I'm going to cook my noodles beforehand, and mix them into the rest of the ingredients right before serving. It was kind of starchy for our taste.
I tried this out today, put the ingredients in and came back when there was about 1.5 hours left. I added both cheddar and mozzarella cheese and used penne instead on elbow macaroni. It was already finished when I get home but the ingredients stuck to the sides and some of the pasta hardened. I also changed the servings to 4 but there was barely enough for me and my husband and he usually eats seconds at dinner. It makes less than you think. So if you want extras and there are at least 2 people in the house, change it to 6 servings. This was a simple and good tasting recipe, will make it again but with more servings added,
This is so easy to make and great comfort food, was a definite winner with hubby and even the kids were happy with this one, great for busy weeknights. Thanks for posting!
