I'm using my crock pot for a 2 day cook big and fill the freezer binge. I'm making dishes based on the drastically reduced-price meats (as in, sell date is almost upon us) found at the supermarket yesterday. I'm cooking for one with a 5 qt crock pot, so I do this often. There are always leftovers.
2 cans white beans of your choice, 2 pkgs pesto (plus water & olive oil as directed) - simmer to a mush, spread on thinly sliced, toasted italian bread. Looks dreadful, tastes fantastic. Plus you can add whatever you like, add artichoke? top with Parmigiano-Reggiano?
My Go-To Recipe: 1/2 box pasta, 1-2 pkgs dry pesto (depending on how saucy you like it), cook pesto according to directions, towards the end, add 5 or so sliced Sun Dried Tomatoes (I like the chewy dry ones) and some rotisserie chicken. With pasta, cook asparagus pieces or peas. Combine, eat!
