Still learning myself...

But look at this website...

hillbillyhousewife.com

she has alot of good recipies.

Also, heres a few of my favs...

CROCKPOT LASAGNA

8 uncooked lasagna noodles
1 pound ground beef (or substitute w/ ground turkey)
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
28-ounce jar spaghetti sauce
1/3 cup water
4-oz. can sliced mushrooms, optional
15 oz. low-fat ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Brown ground beef in skillet. Drain. Stir in Italian seasoning.

Break noodles into thirds. Place half in bottom of greased crockpot. Spread half of ground beef mixture over noodles in crockpot.

On top of beef, layer 1/2 of sauce, 1/2 of water, 1/2 of mushrooms (opt.), 1/2 of ricotta, and 1/2 of mozerella cheese. Repeat all layers.

Cover. Cook for 5 hours on low. Enjoy this yummy dish! - York County, Pennsylvania

(I leave out the mushrooms, and for the cheeses, I just use a pkt of preshreded pizza cheese.  Oh, and I don't cook it this long, even on low, I would only cook it tops 5 hours, the cheese burns otherwise, I also just use oregano instead of italian seasoning, because that's what I have).

My kids like noodles/sauce, too.  I also cook brown rice and make casseroles in my Crock-Pot.  Mexican food is pretty cheap and can be healthy, too.

Good luck!
