    I was reluctant about trying this recipe because I have never had good results with cooking pasta dishes in the crock. They always come out like mush. But I decided to give it a try. I love that it is made with whole wheat pasta. The recipe was super easy to put together.
    I used a 4qt crock (that’s all I own since we are ‘empty nesters’ and only need one that size). It is a good thing I came home when I did! It was totally cooked and getting browned on the edges after 4hours on low. The texture is a bit different than my usual oven baked recipe. I think that is because of the eggs. It has kind of a custard texture. Not bad, just different.
    Overall ,I would say this recipe is a keeper.
