Simple Supper


Crockpot spaghetti squash, beef tips, and egg noodles – way more delicious than it looks.  The sprinkle of Berbere really made the squash sing!  The beef tips were heavenly – super tender.  I had cooked them for several hours in the Crockpot using chicken bone broth for the liquid, thus the gravy was eye-rollingly rich and flavorful . 

BONUS:  There are four bags of future dinners in the freezer!

    You make me think I should get my old crock pot out of the cupboard. I think I might have given it away though.

      Would definitely recommend the use of a Crock-Pot. It made getting that spaghetti squash “just right” a cake walk. If you like baked potatoes, you can toss in however many you want to cook and have a nice supply for eating “all the way” as a lunch or dinner, or to make home fries with onions, mushrooms, bacon and cheese, or to whip up a tasty bowl of potato soup with celery and onions on a breezy, cold day. Bonus if you have a roasted red pepper to put in it. HINT: Roasted red peppers come in jars in the grocery store at an almost reasonable price considering it isn’t red pepper season right now. ;->

    I’m not a meat eater but I wonder how this would work with some fake meat like tempeh! Because it looks really, really good. When you do pasta in the crockpot, how much time do you give it at the end of the prep? Do you put it in for about a half hour? I know if you put it in too early, it can get all mushy.

      The spaghetti squash was cooked in the Crockpot for about three hours on high. The noodles were boiled regularly in water. The beef tips were done in the same Crockpot, but I had done them the day before.

      Since noodles, pasta and rice/grains are so easily done on their own, I’ve never tried to cook them in a crockpot.
