    I just took Creamy Cheesy Pumpkin Soup to a potluck and it was gobbled up. The women seemed to like it better than the men did. I think I found it on this BB.

    I have made this up and cooked in a crockpot-it worked well.

    12 OZ uncooked spaghetti
    1 1/2 lbs ground beef
    1 small onion, chopped
    1 packet taco seasoning
    26 oz jar spaghetti sauce
    4.5 oz can sliced mushrooms, drained
    2.25 oz can sliced ripe olives, drained
    2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
    shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sour cream, salsa

    Cook spaghetti as label directs. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook ground beef and onion until no pink remains.Drain. Stir in taco seasoning, spaghetti sauce, mushrooms, and olives. Drain pasta, add to beef mixture. Transfer to a greased, shallow, 3 qt baking dish (or crockpot). Sprinkle with cheese. bake uncovered for 25"-30" @ 350º. Top with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and salsa before serving.

    If I remember correctly, I made this in the morning, then took to work and cooked on low and it was ready to eat at noon. My crockpot is newer and cooks very hot, even on low.
