I used the italian seasoned turkey meat but I'm sure it doesn't matter! I added more past than planned but it turned out to be nice and hearty. To lighten it up you could add beef broth in with all of the veggies in the beginning.


Brown meats with garlic. Poor all other ingredients in crockpot on high EXCEPT macaroni. Pour meat in and stir. Cook on high for 2hrs. Reduce to low (I added italian seasoning, onion flake, and garlic salt at this point) and add cooked pasta for 30 minutes. Serve with onions and light cheddar!
