Well... It might have been edible, had I went easy on the additional liquid I added to help cook the noodles... Needless to say, I should have listened to Katie....

No pizza.... YET!

Thanks all for the help!

Well - did the recipe originally call for "some amount" of "noodles" and Handy Hubby just added more than the recipe called for?

Some "Crockpot" recipes do call for "noodles" to be added at the beginning of cooking ... and they generally account for a lower moisture content to offset the prolonged cooking time so the noodles don't turn to mush. Ok - they will probably not be al dente - but not total mush.

Ironically ... adding too much extra liquid in an attempt to compensate for Hubby's extra noodles can be worse than not doing anything at all! The extra liquid can turn the noodles to mush!!!

Don't know - don't know the original recipe, how Handy Hubby mucked it up, and how much you tried to compensate.

FWIW - back in the 70's - we used to toss in an extra handful of noodles or rice to bind up the liquids and prolong the cooking without the starchs (pasta or rice) breaking down as quickly.

Thanks... It was a Chicken Casserole that I was doing in the crockpot to keep from heating the oven. Normally, quite good...
Chicken Noodle Casserole (8 Points)

4 servings at 8 pts

1 Can cream of celery soup
1 Can cream of mushroom soup (you could mix/match any creamed soup)
1/3 Cup dry sherry
2/3 Cup skim milk
2 Tablespoons parsley flakes
10 Ounces frozen peas
2 Cans chunk chicken -- drained
10 Ounces egg noodles -- cooked (no yolk)
2 Tablespoons light margarine
1 Dash curry powder -- (optional)

In a large bowl, thoroughly combine soup, sherry, milk, parsley flakes, vegetables, and chicken. Fold in noodles. Pour into greased crock-pot. Dot with butter or margarine. Cover and cook on Low 7 to 9 hours. (Cook noodles just until tender. )
