Slow Cooker Lo Mein
Skip delivery and try this veggie-packed takeout favorite for a healthy dinnertime meal that is easy to make right in your crockpot!
I know. It’s Friday night. All you want to do is change into sweats and order take-out.
Except it’s bikini season in like 2 months.
So let’s save the calorie-ridden takeout dishes and make this instead – a veggie-loaded favorite made right in your slow cooker.
You can let it all cook through while you’re at work, and when it’s time to serve, simply boil your noodles. That’s it!
Spaghetti noodles can also be swapped out with your favorite type of pasta – fettuccine, ramen, udon – it’s completely up to you.
And with Reynolds slow cooker liners, clean up has never been any quicker.
See, isn’t that easier than ordering takeout?
