My Review: Yeah, those instructions are pretty vague, huh? I was like, "Just combine everything? Just like that?" And well... I did! I threw it all in there and mixed it up with a spoon, then turned it on. The top started to get sorta crispy, so I had to stir it a few times. Honestly, this meal was a bit complicated for a crock pot meal, for me anyway. I like the idea of just throwing things in and cooking. This took a lot of steps - browning, cutting, cooking noodles.
Other than that, the food was delicious, of course! We scooped it up and put it on our plates, and I had seconds. I wish it was a bit spicier, but other than that, it was good. We paired it with roasted, yep roasted again, asparagus and mushrooms.
Tomorrow I'm making Shepherd's Pie! A classic!
