I posted this on slow cooker conversation too.......but I really like this recipe site. I love the web site www.allrecipes.com they have thousands of recipes and lots of slow cooker recipes.You can sort by rating and read what reviews there are about the recipe. I usually only look and the ones that have been rated lots of times. That way someone else has done the leg work for me. I do try out new ones here and there.
You can even search by ingredients.....just put in what stuff you have in the fridge and let it offer you suggestions on what to make with what you have! It's a great site. Try it! Oh...and it's free!

Cut up some leftover ham into bit sized pieces, with some broccoli, peas, and whatever veg you think the kids will eat. add it to about 2 cups cooked and drained short pasta, and a jar of alfredo sauce. bake until golden on top. Kids love it, and the veggies go down without a fight.

My entire family loved this. Served it with crackers and a salad and tall glass of cold milk!! Yum!
My house-fullof boys LOVE this recipe...I don't make it often though, because it is not healthy...but it is delish!!!
Homemade Fettucini Alfredo
1 pint heavy Whipping Cream
1/4 stick BUTTER...not margarine or spread
3 tbsp cream cheese
1/2 - 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
grilled chicken, optional, but highly recommended
Cooked baby carrots, Broccoli, Sugar Snap peas, or any other veggie you'd like!
This recipe will comfortably feed 4-5 "normal" appetites...if you're feeding more than 4 adults, or (gulp!) more than 2 teenagers, you may consider doubling the recipe...I haven't had the need to, but I don't see why any leftover sauce can't be frozen for another use...just don't freeze the noodles in the sauce!
Anyway, make enough noodles to feed your family. melt the butter in a pan over medium low heat. Add the cream cheese, and stir with a whisk to ensure smooth melting. Add the cream slowly, continue stirring to ensure that the cream cheese and the cream become smooth in texture. When it is all mixed smooth, add the garlic and the parmesan cheese. Stir constantly, and allow the mix to simmer for a couple of minutes to get completely hot. At this point, you can either mix the sauce and the noodles in one big pot to serve, or allow people to mix it on their plates, depending on your family's preferences. The grilled chicken and vegetables can be mixed on or left separate as well. Yum!

Our family favorite soup is called Cream of Tomato with Cheese Tortellini. Our favorite restaurant used to serve it then they closed. I was desperate and came up with something very close after a little trial and error! And as a bonus it's super or should I say "souper" easy!
1 jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce (or homemade is even better!)
1 can evaporated milk (not sweetened condensed)
1 package tortellini (i've used mini ravioli too)
cook you tortellini according to package directions
heat spaghetti sauce
add milk and stir
add tortellini just before serving
garnish with cheese and enjoy
We love this with warm garlic bread and a great salad!

ps did i say leave the sausages whole? i have used this recipe on thin sausages also. Beef is th only one it tastes right for, and my brother is a fat paranoic so he boils his sausages first to remove most of the fat. He says it is good, but i think the fat makes the sauce smooth, as long as the brand or type of sausage has a reasonable level of fat only in them. Supermarket sausages not as good in this recipe, ones from the butcher taste best IMHO :))

I have a family fav recipe that you might like to test out. My brothers and i always loved this one and our kids all love it to. a cheap tasty way to have sausages for dinner. It is tradition in our family to serve this with mashed potato and a green (usually peas).
Golden sausage casserole.
* enough thick beef sausages for each family member (hint mine always eat extra as well)
* 2 table spoons Holbrooks worstishire sauce
* 1 table spoon brown malt vinegar (cornwalls?sp)
* 2 tbls sugar
* 2 tbls self raising flour
* 2 carrots sliced in rings
* 1 large onion sliced in rings
* 1 and a half cups warm water
place sausages sliced onion and carrot in casserole dish, putting some of the carrot/onion underneath the sausages.
Make sauce (this is gonna look strange but it works)
put 2 tablespoons of worstorshire sauce, 1 tbl malt vinegar, and 2 tble sr flour with 2 tblsp sugar (i use raw sugar cause i dont keep white sugar in the house). whisk in the warm water. Pour over sausage .
cook at 180 for around an hour the sauce will thicken and the sausages will look and smell cooked.
Some familys need to double the sauce mix to have enough sauce to reach around half way up the sausages, around half the height of the sides of the dish is ideal.
suggest you try it a couple of times, the sauce is always delicious and kids love it. I think this is an old recipe that my grandmother used during ww2 when she had muy grandfather at home (he was needed to keep the coal coming for the war effort) so in a time of poverty she had to find hearty healthy feeds for grandads heavy job. So this kept him with enough energy and little cost.
good luck and get ready to add it to the family favorites book.
