Slow Cooker Chicken Tortiall Soup

I found this:
recipe on and it is healthy, inexpensive, yummy, and done in the slow cooker. It is a perfect addition to our family menu plan. Well, at lease it was until my slow cooker lid got bumped onto the floor and shattered on the floor.

Skillet Lasagna

I got this recipe from my friend Betsy. She is seriously a GREAT cook. If I am in a hurry I will use quick cook noodles and cut the cooking time by 10+ minutes.

2 minced garlic cloves
6-12 uncooked mini noodles
