Pasta with Kielbasa and Sauerkraut
I thought it was okay but there were way too many noodles. I tried another reviewer's suggestion and added brown sugar to sweeten the sauerkraut. I thought it was okay; My husband and 2 year old HATED it. Won't be making it again.

Slow Cooker Pot Roast
This recipe is amazing. We have never quite figured out what the original recipe author meant by "dry beef gravy mix" so we use brown gravy mix, assuming that's what they meant by beef gravy. The mixture of the gravy mix with the italian and ranch dressing mixes adds flavor to the beef like no other pot roast I have ever tasted. It's amazing! We use baby carrots instead of regular carrots, and we usually add an extra onion and some cubed red potatoes, if there is room in the crock pot.

Baked Spaghetti
I made this for my family and we LOVED it, including my picky 2 year old. I substituted the cottage cheese for ricotta cheese, following some other suggestions, and it was delicious. It tasted like an easy spaghetti lasagna. I baked it in a stoneware dish, which crisped the edges (yum). It's great leftover and makes a large amount; however, it is not great frozen and reheated - very dry when reheated. I would not recommend freezing this one.
