Today at Mom Life, our topic of interest was Freezer Cooking. We discussed the best and most efficient way to freeze meals ahead of time for quick cooking later. I left feeling very motivated and excited to get started.
I decided, in the spirit of motivation, to share with you Michael's new favorite meal. This is one of the many yummy meals I found in an old cookbook. Thanks MOM! :) I did this in the crock pot, but it is a must to my list of freezer meals.
Crock Pot Pizza
1 ½ lbs ground turkey/beef
1 can mushrooms
1 green pepper
1 pkg pepperoni
2 8oz cans pizza sauce (I used 32 oz of sauce I had in the freezer)
½ box rigatoni noodles (I used a whole box of whole wheat)
10 oz mozzarella
10 oz cheddar cheese
Brown meat, pepper, and onion – drain. Cook noodles as on box.
Make layers beginning with meat mixture and pepperoni. Top with sauce and cheeses, repeat. Cook 3-4 hours in crock pot or until cheese is bubbly or bake in oven 1 hour at 350 in 9x13 pan. If you choose to freeze: prepare as directed, allow to cool, and then freeze. When ready to enjoy, defrost and bake.
