Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak
I'd give this 5 stars except that I made so many changes. This is definitely a keeper! I read one reviewer that was annoyed at everyone posting their changes to the recipe but I have to say I find those reviews helpful and I'm glad people write down what they changed. I cut it in half since only two of us were eating it so I also only used 1/2 packet of onion soup mix. I added sliced mushrooms and onions. I used 1 can of low sodium cream of mushroom soup instead of the 2 cans of cream of chicken. I didn't have a packet of Au Jus mix so I used a can of low sodium beef broth. I added Worcestershire sauce to the meat. And I added my own secret weapon for gravy - Gravy Master. I love the flavor it adds to gravy! I served it with mashed potatoes and the gravy was So good the mashed potatoes were really only there as a reason to eat more of the gravy. I always thought Salisbury Steak was a lot of work. This recipe made it a snap - even on a work night. Thanks!

Pesto Chicken Penne Casserole
I gave it 5 stars even though I tweaked it after reading some of the other reviews. We loved it! I halved the pesto and I used low fat pesto and low fat alfredo sauce. I forgot the milk which could be why mine turned out a little dry. I also halved the crushed tomatoes because my husband has this thing against eating chicken with red sauce. As per one recommendation, I added some shredded mozzarella on top of the casserole but under the breadcrumbs. I finally have an alternative to a basic baked ziti for a crowd! I would only make this once or twice a year though because it makes so much and even with using low fat sauces it's a little high in calories. But it really is worth making it was SO tasty!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
Fantastic! It's the only time my husband has actually liked my BBQ. It's so tender. I rubbed the roast in salt, pepper and garlic powder first. It's become a regular recipe in my house. Thank you for posting it!
