Recommended Posts

I haven't tried this, but it looks like some Buddies might like this! :) :bcbsalute

 

Pot of Pizza

 

8 ounces extra lean ground beef or turkey

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup chopped green pepper

1/2 cup (one 2.5 ounce jar) sliced mushrooms, drained

1 3/4 cup (one 15-ounce can) Hunt's Tomato Sauce

1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning

1 teaspoon pourable Splenda

3 cups cooked whole wheat noodles, rinsed and drained

1/4 cup shredded fat free or soy Cheddar cheese

1/4 cup shredded fat free or soy Mozzarella cheese

 

In a large skillet, sprayed with olive-oil-flavored cooking spray, brown meat, onion and green pepper. Stir in mushrooms, tomato sauce, Italian seasoning and Splenda. Pour mixture into a slow cooker sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray. Spread noodles over meat mixture. Layer cheddar and mozzarella cheeses evenly over the top. Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours/ Mix well before serving

Hi Carol}}}}}}}}

Sounds absolutely D~E~L~I~S~H!!

May I please ask,"How many Points per 1 Cup serving??"

I believe this is CORE, am I correct?? I LOVE LOVE LOVE whole wheat pasta, I just find that I have to cook mine ali`l more than the calculated pkg directions of 12 mins, I cook mine more like 20 mins.; til just past the "el dente" range.

TYVMIA!!

Would this work baked in the oven?

 

 

If so, what changes would need to be made?

I just finished making this for dinner tonight and it was awesome!!! I baked it and it was great.

 

I set the oven at 350, sprayed a medium casserole dish with butter flavored pam, dumped in the noodles, added the meat mixture, topped with the cheeses, then covered with foil and baked for 30 min. It was awesome!!!

 

My in-laws are coming to visit this next week, will be making this for sure!

This was pretty good as far as this type of pasta thing. I used a whole lb of ground beef, 2 cans of tomato sauce, a tablespoon of splenda, about a cup of cheese (combined) and I just added in green peppers and onions until I ran out of room.

 

I baked it in a 9x12 pan and I have a ton left over. I'm assuming this freezes well!

I was kind of leary to have pasta in a crockpot as I have never done this and thought it would be mushy...BUT it was fabulous..my whole family loved it and this recipe fed 7 of us (well 4 kid and 3 adults) it was great!

Tomato Sauce is core.. not spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce I think that's what you mean?

Ok, I am such a dummy. TOMATO sauce, not spaghetti sauce. I think this has always been the same thing in my head. Duhhhhhhh.

 

Ok, this looks very family friendly.

 

Thanks for responding so quickly.

I made this last night. I didn't care for the flavor of the sauce at all. So next time, I think I'll use a different sauce recipe. Mine came out very watery...I'm thinking that the base also needs a small can of tomatoe paste to help sweeten the pot a bit. This came out more like a bitter spaghetti sauce than tasting like pizza sauce.

 

Hunts (the really cheap cans of spaghetti sauce) makes the best sauce IMO. There is a "no sugar added" sauce in a can that I've found in national grocery chains (Like Target and Wal-Mart) and it's about a dollar in price. I think because they don't add sugar, it's Core. There's natural sugar in it from the tomatoes. If it's not Core, well, if I remember right...it's like one point a serving. Very tasty sauce.

I made this in the oven yesterday. It was very good. I used Boca Crumbles and Veggie Shreds and substituted some oregano and basil for the Italian seasoning. It's a keeper!

I always make it in the oven. I think I cooked it for 30 or 40 minutes at 350. I don't like to use my crockpot unless I am at home because I am gone too long during the day to cook anything right.

Do you put the noodles on top like the crockpot directions say or do u layer it like lasagna, or do u even use noodles? I think some sort of rotinni or shells would work with this too?

I did use noodles when I made this but I think other shells would work too. I might want to use some extra tomato sauce if I made it with rotini - in fact I used a big can of sauce (32oz?) when I made this with noodles and 1lb of meat. I always use more onions and I put the whole green pepper in. I sprayed the pan and put the noodles in then poured all the other ingredients on top except for the cheese. Then I put the cheese on top and covered it with sprayed tin foil (so the cheese would not stick to the tin foil). My Italian husband ate it and liked it!
