Y’all know how much I love suppers that I can get on the table in a hurry during the week and my recipe for Slow Cooker Beef Ziti absolutely delivers! It only takes a few minutes to prepare the ingredients, pop them into your slow cooker and then let your slow cooker do all the work for you while you are busy doing other things.
Since we’re back in school, my slow cooker has been a huge relief to me so that I’m not even having to think about timing everything around lessons, rushing out the door for football practice and then having to come home and finish it off to be able to eat.
With this Slow Cooker Beef Ziti, I brown my ground beef and onion in the morning, throw it into my slow cooker with a large can of tomatoes, ziti noodles, garlic, and a little bit of water. I give it a quick stir and then just forget about it until we get home from football.
And that makes me happy as can be!
Here’s how I make it.
We serve this straight from the crock of the slow cooker with a salad or other vegetables.
Slow Cooker Beef Ziti also makes a great freezer meal. Just place in an airtight container, wrap tightly and place in your freezer. To reheat once frozen, just thaw in your refrigerator overnight and reheat in your oven or microwave.
