I'm new to the world of slow cookers. It's going to be way too hot to use my oven tomorrow night (no AC, 92 degrees, etc), so I want to basically use my slow cooker to heat a meal for which I usually use the oven.
Can you give me any guidance as far as cooking time and settings?
I don't need an exact time (I would imagine that crockpots vary quite a bit), I just kind of want to know how long before dinnertime to start heating it.
The meal is basically a layered pasta-- like lasagna, except using rotini. So, it'll have layers of (cooked) pasta, tomato sauce, chunks of roasted eggplant and a ricotta, parm and spinach mixture... with mozz and parm melted on the top. All of the ingredients will be chilled when I assemble it.
I have this slow cooker, if that helps....
