CROCK POT RAVIOLI CASSEROLE
1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen chopped spinach
1 (8 oz.) pkg. twisty noodles - can use frozen ravioli (or homemade)
1 lb. hamburger
1/2 lb. mild Italian sausage
1 onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp. oil
2 (8 oz.) cans tomato sauce - my preference is homemade sauce
1 t. salt
1 t. oregano
1/2 c. Parmesan
1 c. (4 oz.) shredded Monterey Jack cheese - my preference is mozzarella
3 green onions, chopped
Defrost spinach. Squeeze dry. Cook noodles in boiling, salted water until tender. Drain. Brown meats and onion in oil until crumbly. Add tomato sauce, salt and oregano. Cover. Simmer 30 minutes.
