Now that we're in the dog days of summer the last thing we want to do is turn on our oven Right? Well, of course right! But on the other hand, it can get pretty boring eating salads all summer long
The answer? How about making a fill-ya-up comfort food favorite that's made in your slow cooker? We start by sauteing Italian sausage along with a chopped onion and some garlic While that finishes up we mix together some ricotta cheese with a couple of beaten eggs, a good amount of shredded mozzarella, some Parmesan cheese, and some oregano Then, after lining the bottom of our slow cooker with spaghetti sauce, we add in half of the cooked sausage, half of the ricotta mixture, and half a pound of uncooked ziti that we rinsed in cold water That allows us to throw it in without cooking it first After layering everything one more time we finish it off with more sauce and cheese
Then we simply turn on the slow cooker and walk away! When it's done, what we end up with, is a slow cooked comforting favorite There's no heating up the kitchen and no need to rush home to make dinner It's ready to serve whenever your gang is ready to dig in! To get the recipe for our Slow Cooker Baked Ziti all you have to do is check out our website I'm Howard in the Mr Food Test Kitchen, where today we found a slow cooked summer way for you to say, "Ooh It's So Good!"
