Pizza casserole (slow cooker)




If you are anything like me you look for inexpensive meals you can cook and this is one of my favs. I cook this cut it into portions then freeze it but take my word for it  this is great for families and when people drop in.

We have a rule in our house that if its not on sale we can not buy it so mince or ground beef depending on where you are from is always on sale so is always there to be used and finding interesting ways to use it is what makes life interesting.

So here we go

Slow cooker

Ingredients
  • One packet  of pasta and I use anything other than spaghetti .
    mince or ground beef depending what you call it
  • and if you like add pork mince as well
  •  sliced pepperoni
  • 1/2 large white onion, chopped
  • two jars of pasta sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  •  garlic two teaspoons and i use home brand crushed from coles
  • a couple of cups of cups of cheese .... I am not fond of mozzarella cheese so I tend to use  coles tasty cheese which I grate and I add parmesan cheese and often cream cheese. 
  • Aldi is good for all these cheeses and so is coles
amounts depends on numbers you are cooking for or if you are going to freeze it

You will need to cook your pasta and I use the whole packet or box

  Fry your cut up onion add garlic and any spices you want and then brown off the mince lightly

In your slow cooker place half cooked pasta

add one jar of pasta sauce

add some cheese

add half cooked mince 

add rest of pasta

add cheese

add mince

add other jar of pasta sauce

top with cheese and pepperoni

 cover with lid and cook on high for between one and two hours but check as each slow cooker is different.
