Creamy Crock Pot Spaghetti


I finally found something that I felt was worthy of the Kroger Private Selection Angus Ground beef that I got from the Private Selection Taste of Summer campaign which I got from being a bzz agent. Just plain spaghetti and hamburger helper wouldn't do. And I have never been very good at making hamburgers.

My friend and I had a girl's night in. I made this and we watched 'Pay It Forward' (which I had never seen) while our girls played together. Fun night! :)

I got this recipe from Budget Savvy Diva (through pinterest).
 



 


What You Need
1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 Minced garlic cloves - I used garlic salt because I didn't have any fresh garlic
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 jars of pasta sauce
1 box spaghetti noodles
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese - I used pepper jack because I didn't have any parm
4 ounces cream cheese
1 cup of chopped onions - I used onion powder because I didn't have any fresh onion (I mixed it and the garlic salt in with the other spices)
1 Teaspoon of Italian Seasoning
1-2 cups chicken broth
Olive Oil


What To Do
Heat up a small amount of oil in a pan – sautee onions. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add beef and brown. Add all seasonings.
In your crock pot over high heat add one jar of pasta sauce.
Layer next with broke spaghetti noodles ( you just break them in half)
Layer with beef.
Layer with  Parmesan cheese and dollops of cream cheese.
Layer with 2nd jar of pasta sauce.
Cook for 3 hours – stir once add chicken stock ( amount will depend on how little moisture is left) and cook for one more hour.
Enjoy
I like to sprinkle a little more cheese on top
