Peanut Butter Fudge | This Is Why I’m Full
I have said it before, and I will say it again. Pasta in the crockpot is the best cooking discovery in a long time. I mean really, it gives you so many more options as far as sauces go, it’s low maintenance, no wasted water, etc. I could go on for days. Instead I will tell you about my new favorite Crock Pot pasta dish:Crock Pot Cheesy Bacon Pasta! I wanted to chop up the bacon and cook it in with the sauce and pasta for that last slice of time (while the pasta is cooking and the sauce is thickening) but the Hubby wanted his bacon in big slices on top, so because I love him I let him have his bacon and eat it too!
The leftovers were amazing, I was worried that the pasta would get soggy but I think since we cooked it in the sauce there wasn’t enough water for that to happen! (Crisis averted. Soggy pasta = disgusting) I only wish we had made more! Or eaten less, but it was so good we just couldn’t stop!

Here’s another installment in our Crock Pot adventure! I should number these posts to see how many Crock Pot meals we make in a year. I could make a spreadsheet and chart when we make Crock Pot meals most often, and graph… and maybe I should get another hobby.
Anyway, this recipe has BACON in it! I was excited when this recipe was picked out by my wife, she said “hey look this has bacon in it, you’ll like it wont you?”
Yes. Yes I do like it. Remember when I was eating chips with Crock Pot dinners? This was one of them, and my wife judged me for it and you probably will too. I don’t know why, but plain corn chips and Crock Pot meals just go hand in hand with me. Back to the recipe though you add your pasta towards the end of cooking this dinner, maybe half an hour before you want to serve it so the noodles have time to cook too. Make sure at that point that you stir the pasta otherwise you’ll end up with a few crunch and a few mushy pieces of pasta. I also want you to beware, this recipe makes a lot of food. We have quite a large Crock Pot so if yours is under 5 quarts you might want to scale this one back. Or buy a larger Crock Pot and make all of the food in one go, then you’ll have leftovers for weeks!
