Whats For Dinner?

Today I thought I would simply share one of my favorite slow cooker recipes. I love pasta so this recipe quickly became a favorite of mine! I hope you all enjoy. Feel free to leave a comment with your favorite recipe or send me some mail and maybe I will feature your recipes on my blog in the future! Like what does your family always ask you to make. What do you make at least once a week? What do you fix as your dish for family holidays? What do you make for a quick easy dinner? These are all some fabulous questions I would love to know the answers to from my readers? Plus I might want to steal some ideas for my own cooking needs =)!
