Who Can Say No to Pizza?
Pizza is one of those meals that just about anyone can agree on. Regardless of whether you prefer the standard pepperoni, or whether you like to get wild with pineapple, everyone likes pizza. Even the pickiest eaters will usually grab a bite or two.
For many who suffer from chronic illness dinner can be an issue. As the day goes on our energy fades. This makes crock pot meals a wonderful thing for us. It’s awesome to be able to throw dinner together in the morning or early afternoon while our energy is still good. This way things are ready to go for our families without having to struggle in the kitchen later when we may not be feeling quite up to it.
This slow cooker pizza pasta recipe has been a standard in my house for years. I’m sure that it will quickly become one for you as well. Not only is it incredibly easy to put together and forget about until dinner, but everyone in my house loves it! ( Even my 9-year-old who literally hates everything that isn’t cookies or corndogs)
I have made a few changes over the years to make it healthier and a little less fattening. I always use high fiber pasta, part-skim cheese, and turkey pepperoni. However, there are always more adjustments that can be made to make it even better!
A Note on Pastas
Any pasta that you have on hand will work here. I don’t think that I would use a spaghetti or linguini with this personally, but you could in a pinch. I have found, however, that pastas like penne and rigatoni seem to work better with the thinner pizza sauce because the grooves in it tend to hold the sauce on better.
We hope you enjoyed this recipe. Let us know in the comments how it turned out and if you changed it in any way! If you have any questions let us know too, we’ll be happy to answer them. Be sure you follow Ghastly Girl on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest updates too!
