Happy Halloween featuring The Perfect Stew

“Hamburger Soup” Doesn’t Cut It.

How about “perfect” stew? Really, I’m not kidding. It’s soupy, cheesy, meaty, noodly (not a word), comforting stew. I threw all of this together because it’s what I had in the house and it was close to what I needed for another recipe (“Hamburger Soup”). I had fifteen minutes before a meeting and I challenged myself to get this together and turn my slow-cooker on and POW! Voila! Presto! When I returned from the meeting, the house smelled like an Italian Pastaria!
