Three Ingredient Dinners: Slow Cooker Baked Pasta & Bagel Pizza

Three  Ingredient Dinners: Slow Cooker Baked Pasta & Bagel Pizza

Dinner time can be so hectic and when you forgot to plan it becomes even more stressful. However, if you keep a few key ingredients in your pantry as staple items, you can make either of these three ingredient dinners in no time. Well the slow cooker baked pasta takes 3 hours but that is much less than a traditional crock pot meal and it comes together so easily you can do it after lunch and have it ready for dinner time. The bagel pizzas are even easier, just pop them in the oven and in 10 minutes you have dinner. You just need to have a few items on hand for these Three ingredient Dinners 

Three Ingredient Dinners

Told you these were simple. For the Slow cooker baked Pasta Easy three ingredient dinner, you simply need to spray your crock pot or use a liner. (I prefer the liner for easy clean up).

Rinse your pasta and add it to your Homestyle Thick and Hearty Roasted Garlic Sauce  These new Ragu Flavors are their  thickest sauce– you can tell because it hugs the pasta  The flavors are bold  because we peel, chop and simmer our ingredients and use a special blend of herbs (basil, fennel, oregano and black pepper) to layer and build the flavor. Just like homemade pasta sauce. Also important is Rago does not  use artificial flavors, artificial colors or high fructose corn syrup

Add your cheese and and additional water that you swirled in your jar Ragu Homestyle Thick and Hearty Roasted Garlic Sauce and pour it over the pasta.

Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until pasta is right tenderness. Serve with some more grated cheese. DO NOT Make this more than 4 hours ahead of time. I put mine on warm and then served it to the family after I took this photo and it turned into more of a lasagna. All the noodles sort of jelled together.

For the Pizza Bagel, simply layer some  Homestyle Thick and Hearty Roasted Garlic Sauce onto a thin bagel. Add your mozzarella cheese, I used fresh for this recipe.
