Slow Cooker Pizza Bake Recipe {Freezer Meal}

Don’t you love slow cooker meals? :)  So quick and easy!  My aunt made this for a large family gathering and my kids (and husband!) could not get enough of it!  We have made it a couple of times since and it has been a huge hit every time.
Slow Cooker Pizza Bake Recipe (Freezer Meal)
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1 medium onion (optional), diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
8 oz sliced pepperoni
4 oz (1 cup) shredded mozzarella cheese
8 oz (2 cups) shredded cheddar cheese
12 oz Rigatoni noodles, cooked
15 oz pizza sauce
26 oz Spaghetti sauce

1. Brown meat, onion and pepper in frying pan.
2. Drain grease and add pizza sauce and spaghetti sauce
3. Combine all ingredients in a large crock pot (spray with non-stick spray first).
4. Cook on HIGH for 30 minutes and then LOW for 2 or 3 hours until the cheese melts.
Note:  This makes a lot of food, so I usually freeze half before cooking it.  Later it can be thawed and cooked in the slow cooker as directed above.

      It would just depend on how big your servings are. I’m thinking around 10 servings. But if you have big eaters, maybe not as many servings. With little kids, you could get away with this for 2 meals.

    I’m making this tomorrow for myself and hubby and our 3 year old. I would like to divide this meal so we can have it at least one more time. How many freezer bags could I fill with this recipe for 2 adults?

    If you were to cook the entire recipe and then freeze the leftovers already fully cooked does it heat up well and if so, what would be the best way to reheat (microwave, oven, crockpot) and for how long? Or do you only recommend that you freeze it uncooked? Thanks so much! I am freezer cooking in preparation for new baby and this looks delicious! 😉
