Saving and Slow Cooking

If you’re like me,  a slow cooker is your best friend! I received a slow cooker (aka crockpot) as a wedding present. We  use it so frequently that it never gets put up in the pantry with all of my other bulky kitchen gadgets, unless we are prettifying the house for company. Since I’m not only busy, but habitually frugal, I love finding delicious dinners that can be quickly thrown together in the crockpot and hardly cost a thing. That kind of meal makes me happy on many levels! It satisfies my love of all things yummy, simplifies my life, and keeps my purse a little fuller. What more could a girl ask for?

This recipe is super simple and should be a hit with adults and kiddos alike. Are you ready for this? It is Slow Cooker Pizza!! On the count of three, we all say “YUM!!!” 1, 2, 3….YUM!!! Okay, now that I’ve gotten that out of my system… 😉

There are a few coupons available for the ingredients in this recipe, so that spices things up a bit, too. Link and savings will be after the recipe…

~Slow Cooker Pizza~

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef (we use ground deer or turkey as a substitute for ground beef)

1 (8 ounce) package rigatoni (or other shaped) pasta

1 (16 ounce) package Kraft shredded mozarella

1 can Campbell’s condensed cream of tomato soup

2 (14 ounce) jars pizza sauce

1 (8 ounce) package Hormel pepperoni

Veggies of choice (i.e mushrooms, peppers, onions)

*Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook about 8-10 minutes,  until al dente; drain and set aside.

*Brown the ground beef over medium-high heat. Drain off grease.

*In slow cooker, alternate layers of ground beef, noodles, cheese, soup, sauce, pepperoni and any veggies you chose to add.

*Cook on Low setting for 4 hours.

Total number of coupons for this menu: 3, but I added Sargento cheese to the list to print because I didn’t see the Kraft one there when I went to publish, so it shows 4.

Now go print ’em, redeem ’em, cook it up and enjoy!

I’d love to hear how it turned out for you. 🙂

The coupons should be pre-clipped at the link below, but if it didn’t stay clipped for you, just look at the items above that have a brand name and that’s what to look for.
