The glorious magic of coming home from a great day at work, and the cherry on top is you have a hot bubbly baked ziti dinner waiting for you. I call slow cooker my personal chef because you drop everything in and it cooks your dinner for you! Also, this is such a easy fun weeknight dinner that will make everyone smile!
When I was a kid, my Mom would allow us one night a week we could eat any comfort food dish we wanted. This was one of my favorite childhood memories and pasta was always one of my top picks. Now, when I sit down with Tom and our french bulldog (Charlie) and eat pasta I am transformed to those happy memories of comfort food night.
First of all, I love making this recipe because there are always leftovers. Also, you drop dry pasta in the slow cooker so you save the step of boiling the pasta. Finally, I have a system for this recipe, that makes it even more easy to get dinner on the table. Throw everything in the slow cooker, then put it in the fridge Sunday night. Monday morning before work, take it out of fridge, and turn on the slow cooker before leaving for a happy day. This way your first day of the week is greeted with hot, saucy, and cheesy pasta smiles.
