My family loves ground meat and pasta, I was thinking about making one day in the slow cooker ground meat, pasta and sauce. I have cooked meat in the slower cooker before I made meatballs and they turn out really good but I have never cooked pasta in the slower cooker before and I have some questions. How long do I cooked uncooked pasta along with meat and sauce for, and is it better to cook the pasta first then put in the crockpot.

What anon said, unless you want to do a crock pot lasagna. This is the base recipe I use, but I tweak it a bit:
I use bulk turkey sausage instead of just ground turkey, I use tomato puree instead of pre-canned sauce, and I use more mozarella and skip the cottage cheese. As long as you don't over cook it, the noodles come out just right.
