  • No. Noodles in the crockpot will turn out mushy.

    It's better to cook them separately then add them to the sauce when its done.

  • Can you get it out and cook more on its own?

    Otherwise I'd cook it on high and see if that helps.

  • I very rarely use the crock pot. If I am pinched for time and have to be away from home I use it, but that's it. I usually just do roasts, stews and soups or dried beans in it. It uses alot of energy and I have better results with my oven or stove. Rice and noodles tend to get mushy in there.

  • so easy to make,why even bother with crock pot. boil until it tastes "perfect" which is just a little pull when you bite it.not too soft ew! and not too hard.i also put green bellpepper, and onion with the meat also onion powder,garlic powder ,natures seasons and even a little sugar in the sauce.really easy to whip up when you get home from work.
