Casserole Spaghetti
Serves 6-8

  • 1 ½ lb ground beef
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • ½ cup celery, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 28oz can of crushed tomatoes or sauce
  • 2 TBSP chili powder
  • ½ TSP salt (I add more after it’s cooked)
  • ¼ TSP pepper
  • 12 oz spaghetti or other pasta
  • 2 cups shedded cheese (I use a Mexican mix)


  1. Cook ground beef. Drain and cool completely.
  2. Add  green pepper, onion, celery, garlic cloves,  tomatoes, chili pepper, salt, and pepper to the crock pot.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 5-6 hours.
  4. When it’s almost done, cook spaghetti according to package and drain.
  5. Add cooked spaghetti and about 1 cup of cheese to the crock pot and mix well.
  6. Add more cheese to the top and serve!

We really like to eat this with Hawaiian Sweet Rolls.

Note – I have heard that some people have cooked the pasta in the crock pot. I have never tried it. If you have please share the timing and if it’s good! Thanks!

I am confused. I didn't see water on the list of items. How much do you need to add and when do you put in the meat?

Sorry about that. There is no water needed for this recipe. In my original recipe I added 3/4 cup of water because I added a can of cream of mushroom soup and I forgot to edit out the water. Thanks for letting me know!
