  • Spaghetti is always good. Put the sauce in the slow cooker, add the meat cooked w/onions, put in a little chili seasoning, parsley, oregano, mushrooms, more onions, salt, pepper, garlic, and splenda (or sugar). The sugar/splenda is a must, it makes it sooooo good. :-) Then leave it alone for a few hours until it's time for dinner. Cook the pasta noodles and leave separately. (Don't add them to the slow cooker, it'll turn out really bad, trust me on this!). Toss in some garlic bread and you're good to go.

    There is a good white lasagna recipe there. Make something that is more make-ahead friendly so you can spend more time talking and less time in the kitchen.
