i joined a crockpot cooking group on ravelry (wow... you cab find a group for anything!) ... and so wanted to share what my family calls "sausage and spinach and can soup":
i brown a pound of breakfast sausage (i usually use neese's hot)
i "rough chop" an onion and toss into the browning sausage
open 4 cans italian diced tomatoes and 2 cans great white northern beans --- don't drain --- pour contents into crockpot
add the drained sausage and onions to the crockpot
cook on low for 4 to 6 hrs
about 30 minutes before you plan to eat... open crockpot and add a bag of baby spinach... stir in... put lid back on crockpot & let spinach wilt for last 30 minutes of cooking.
this is an "easy" fix meal that i use when i just don't feel like spending a lot of time in the kitchen.
