Crock Pot Lasanga

We are finally getting back into the swing of things here. I didn't do much cooking the first two weeks after Serena's birth because our wonderful and generous church family blessed us with meals for dinner every night. This past week we stuck to some tried and true favorites like posole, spaghetti and lentil stew. Tonight our 7 year old, Kiah took over in the kitchen and with a very small amount of help from me, prepared her first dinner for the family. The meal was wonderful and a very happy mom and dad are much appreciative of her willingness to help in the kitchen! Here's a picture of her culinary masterpiece and the recipe :0) Great work Kiah!!

Crock Pot Lasagna

1 box farfelle ("bow tie") pasta
1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained
( season beef to taste with salt, pepper, minced onion, garlic powder and Italian seasoning)
1/2 bell pepper, diced
2 c. grated mozzarella cheese
2 jars spaghetti sauce of your choice
sliced pepperoni

Spread a small amount of pasta sauce in bottom of crock pot. Layer ingredients in crock pot in thirds as follows: pasta, sauce, meat, bell pepper, cheese. Top last layer with pepperoni. Set on low and cook 3 - 5 hours.
