Converting recipe for crockpot

raewyn64, Jun 16, 6:01am
Hi all
I have a really basic recipe of mince, breakfast sausages which I cook up in the frypan and then add a tin of tomato soup and same quantity of water and then dried pasta and let it cook for about 20 minutes. The liquid soaks into the pasta and cooks it and then I can serve it up - all from one pot.
I want to put it in the crockpot in the morning so it is ready when I get home but am not sure if the pasta will cook up ok or if it will go mushy. I would have it in the crockpot for 10 hours - can cook on high or low - no auto on my crockpot.
Any suggestions would be really appreciated - I haven't done pasta in the machine yet.

Hi, have not done pasta either, but would think it will be ok, I have found that I only use half to quarter the amount of water when doing things I would normally do on stove or oven in the slow cooker. also I would just do it on low for that amount of time. good luck, give us an update tomorrow night.
