Haven't tried this one, but I want to, it sounds really good.
- 3 cups uncooked noodles
- 2 beef bouillon cubes
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1⁄4 cup flour
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 4 ounces shredded cheese
- 1 lb kielbasa, sliced
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 2 carrots, grated
- Cook noodles until barely tender.
- Toss with a small amount of oil.
- Dissolve bouillon in boiling water.
- Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker. Cover. Cook on LOW 8 hours.
After combining everything in the crockpot the mixture was dry. I could not imagine how hard/dry it would be after cooking 8 hours, so I added 1/2 cup of Half & Half. The noodles absorbed the liquid immediately. I then added a can of cream of celery soup (that was all I had on hand) and can full of milk. The mixture still seemed too dry to cook for such a long time. I had someone go to the house at noontime and turn the crockpot off after only 3 1/2 hours. It was a bit overcooked anyway but the onions and carrots were still sort of raw. The flavor was a bit bland but it tasted better with some hot sauce. Perhaps a stronger flavor of cheese would have worked better than the mozzarella I used. If I make this again I will cook the noodles at the last minute and use chicken or vegetable broth instead. Thanks for sharing.
