I absolutely love these little “meat” balls. They’re really simple, versatile and always tasty. For one, you can make them any flavor you want by simply switching the sauce you pour on them. You can eat them over rice, in a wrap, a pita pouch or over noodles. You could even make a sub sandwich with them if you wanted. I make a double batch sometimes and freeze them for a quick meal later on. They’re really cheap to make and you can add whatever you like to the mix to give it your own flavor. Hope you enjoy ~

The Perfect Crock Pot Lasagna

I’ve always had my dreams about crock pot lasagna. In the oven it seemed like I would always have problems. The noodles would be mushy towards the middle, overcooked, where the outside noodles would be so stiff that they would curl upwards and you had to trash them. There were always a couple of things stopping me from the crock pot method, though.  A) finding a decent meat substitute that I truthfully enjoyed and B) the notorious watery mess on the bottom of the dish, and how I could get rid of it. Well, tremendous things happened recently. I found an awesome substitute that tastes completely legit and actually felt confident that it wouldn’t ruin the whole dish with an ‘off ‘ flavor that sometimes happens with artificial beef. While also I thought up a way to balance the ingredients so the bottom wouldn’t get flooded. Luckily, it all worked out and was the best lasagna I have ever had. I’ll never make it in the oven again. Enjoy ~
