Fiesta Pasta Casserole (in a crock pot!)   Leave a comment

Since my family is currently TDY (Temporary stationed at Fort Benning) in a hotel I have very little cooking space. More like limited as to how I can make dinners! It’s a good thing I kept the crock pot BECAUSE we have no oven and a small stove! No, I don’t make a lot of crock pot meals nor have I ever thought about casseroles in the crock pot but I just came up with the solution myself this AM and researched it. Little did I know that it IS possible & there is in fact recipes out there. You learn something new everyday!

 

Well, I had never had this recipe before and thought it was different a something turned out yum to share!
