Or you can do like I did yesterday and throw it in the slow cooker so there are less dishes to clean and took only 10 mins to prepare so I could knit/crochet more :wink:

Hehehe I have a rice cooker. But I mainly cook spaghetti so it’s not much preparation and attention anyway :stuck_out_tongue:

I have an instapot with extra insert and a ninja foodie… I had 3 slow cooked, but got rid of them when I downsized, since I had the instapot and an extra insert :woman_shrugging:t3:

“Goulash” is my go to “episode day” meal… when I don’t feel well and know I can’t safely stand at the stove long, I boil elbow noodles, drain them, and pour spaghetti sauce on top…

I have all of the pot-in-pot and accessories and my slow cookers are two sizes with inserts to cook multiple dishes at the same time. Living in the south, we HAVE to have a way to cook without turning on the stove during the summer. Back when there were 5 of us, I needed all of the things…now I’m using the IP’s till they break and not replacing them. (im down to 3 from 4)

I have a similar meal that we call spaghetti chili
Using my ip colander, I cook the meat in the IP, pull the meat out and cook the pasta in the same water. Drain all of that and fill the IP with the meat, pasta sauce, tomatoes, zucchini, onions, spinach and cook that, then add back the pasta and any cheese. Everything is either frozen or canned, super simple. I’m blessed that Hubby likes it.
