Crockpot Cheesy Pastaness + Freezer Meal

Pull out your Crockpot, a freezer bag & ingredients:

Brown 2 packages ground turkey:

Chop all your veggies:

Dump in your crock pot:

1/2-3/4 box pasta your choice (1 used rotini)
1 cup water
1 can diced tomatoes

1 jar pasta sauce
1 tbsp chopped garlic
2 cups cooked meat
1 1/4 chopped pepper (1/4 each red, yellow & orange, & 1/2 green pepper
7 chopped mushroom stems (leftovers from stuffed mushrooms)
1/2 small onion chopped
2 large handfuls mozzarella cheese
1 tbsp Italian seasoning

Mix up and crock on keep warm for about 3 hours then sprinkle the top with more cheese. May need salt (depends on what you like).

I basically got out twice the amount of ingredients and put one in the freezer (- the water) for later.

*The leftover cooked ground turkey: Add 1/4 cup taco seasoning.  Simmer a little while to get flavor mixed into the meat and put in a ziploc for  the freezer. = Taco meat!

I served with salad and garlic bread :)
