When I saw this pin I have to admit I was really skeptical, seriously even manicotti can go into the crock pot and turn out good. I thought for sure my noodles would be mushy but they were not at all, they turned out like perfect noodles. I had read the hardest part was filling the noodles but I did just as the blogger said and it worked perfect. Although I did need to double the batch to make enough to feed my family of six. These did turn out really good and the whole family loved them. I am a huge fan of crock pot meals, the easier the better!!!
