Lawman Cooks, Family Eats

I came home to a ready-made dinner tonight. By ready-made, I mean that it was ready to eat. And, it was homemade. Best part is that it wasn't made by me. Lawman was in charge of dinner tonight.

He made a variation of this recipe.

It was very good and definitely hit the spot. Served with a hunk of crusty french bread it was a perfect meal on a cold evening. Unfortunately I am not able to show you a picture; my card reader has disappeared.

Here's Lawman's recipe for Pasta Fagioli Soup in a crock pot.

1 lb. ground turkey
1 onion chopped
2 sm. carrots, chopped
1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (16 oz.) can great northern beans, undrained
1 can beef stock + 1/2 can water
1 1/2 t. oregano
1 t. pepper
2 1/2 t. parsley
1/2 t. Tobasco sauce
1/2 jar spaghetti sauce
1 1/4 c. elbo macaroni
1 handful chopped spinach, frozen

Brown ground turkey. Add turkey and all other ingredients except pasta and spinach to crock pot. Cook on low for 7 hours. During the last 30-45 minutes, add pasta and spinach.

It was so nice to come home to dinner. So nice that I suggested Lawman might want to consider making dinner every Thursday.

I need to have Lawman have a chat with my husband... maybe a little recipe exchange...?! :)

That sounds so good. Pasta Fagioli is my favorite Olive Garden soup. Now if only I had someone to make it for me!
