Pam likes to fry her hamburger, then drains it in a colander and sometimes runs hot water through it to get rid of the grease. You may also just boil the hamburger and drain it in a colander to achieve the same results.
She boils and drains the Rotini pasta. Pam says, “Don’t dilute the cream of mushroom soup. It will be just right when mixed with the spaghetti sauce.” She also says she’s going to try adding some sour cream to the pot next time she makes this.
After you have your hamburger and pasta cooked, start layering the ingredients in your Crock Pot. Pam says to be sure to top the pot with the mozzarella cheese.
She also advises that you should not stir the contents of the pot at all until just before serving. At that time it’s okay to stir the contents, and you’ll have a nice, tasty blend.
If she has time, Pam cooks her Crock Pot pizza on low for 5 hours, but most times she cooks it all the way on high power for just 3 hours. Either way, you’ll have a tasty one-dish meal that anyone with an appetite will enjoy.
Pam is hereby recognized as a trustworthy Skinny Cook.
