Beef and Broccoli Pasta (Crock Pot Recipe)

With fall in the air it’s a great time for some comfort food. This is a great little crock pot recipe my family loves.

Ingredients:
10 oz. frozen broccoli
1 onion
1/2 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. thyme
1 can Italian style diced tomatoes
2 cloves garlic
2 tbsp. tomato paste
3/4 cup beef broth
1 lb. ground beef
2 cups cooked rotini
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:
1. Slice the onion into thin slices and place in crock pot with the thawed broccoli, tomatoes with juice, thyme, oregano, basil, and beef broth. Cover and cook on low for 2 1/2 hours.
2. Mince the garlic and cook with the ground beef until beef is browned. Drain the fat and transfer the mixture to the crock pot. Cover and cook on low for an additional 2 hours.
3. Cook the rotini according to package directions. Drain and stir into crock pot with the cheese and the tomato paste. Cover and cook on low for an additional 30 minutes. Serve garnished with additional cheese.

And there you go. A simple recipe that makes a great dinner (with plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day). I sometimes serve this with a side salad and some bread. Enjoy!
