My mother passed along this recipe from a friend of hers, and we love it. I have found that I prefer to undercook my noodles beforehand, rather than cooking them all the way, because I don't want them so soft, they are mushy. And 4 hours is definitely the max, or noodles start burning. Super good though! Great for a pitch-in meal or to feed a big group. Also pretty good heated up as leftovers. Enjoy!
1 pkg (12 oz.) egg noodles 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef or ground turkey 1/4 cup chopped onion 1 jar (28 oz.) spaghetti sauce 1 jar (4 1/2 oz.) mushrooms, drained 1 1/2 tsp. Italian seasonings 1 pkg. sliced pepperoni, halved 3 cups (12 oz.) each of cheddar and mozzarella
Cook noodles according to pkg (or cook about 4 minutes for firmer noodles).Drain noodles.
Meanwhile cook beef and onion until meat is no longer pink. Drain. Stir in spaghetti sauce, mushrooms, and Italian seasoning.
Coat 5 qt. slow cooker with non-stick spray. Spread with 1/3 meat sauce. Cover with 1/3 noodles and pepperoni. Sprinkle with 1/3 of cheese.
In an effort to keep a local retailer in business, I took my 2 coupons into Bath&BodyWorks on Saturday and scored some great deals on handsoap and shower gel. I also snatched a sample bottle of one of the new fragrances in their Paris line--Paris in Bloom. Love it!
The 3 new Paris scents come out in full size later in August. I'm pretty sure they made this stuff for me, which is very sweet. :)
Most of my attempts at making iced coffee at home have ended in disappointment and super BLAH coffee, so I was psyched to try this recipe for an iced mocha. The result? An awesome easy-to-make drink that I have fallen in love with. I made some crazy strong coffee for the ice cubes, since I like my coffee strong. I only make half the recipe, and it makes a tall glass. My next task is to experiment with lowering the calories/fat ( i.e., cocoa instead of chocolate syrup, Splenda instead of sugar) and adding different flavors. I have some York peppermint coffee creamer just begging to be devoured. :)
Here is the recipe:
3 coffee cubes (best if extra strong) 1 cup of milk 1/4 chocolate syrup 2 Tbsp. white sugar
