Fine Print: I was given a prize pack and Red Gold is giving another to a reader. All opinions and statements below are my own.
It’s harvest season and Red Gold Tomatoes is taking a closer look at slow cooker recipes to celebrate tomatoes! I do a LOT of slow cooker meals in the winter because they are so easy and convenient and I tend to find that Red Gold Tomatoes show up in about a fourth of them. (That is the honest truth! SO many recipes call for crushed or diced tomatoes!)
Red Gold has been around since the 1940s growing tomatoes in Indiana, Ohio and Michigan, where true seasons positively impact flavor — with just the right angle of the sun, perfect temperature, and soil that seems made for growing tomatoes.
Red Gold is encouraging families to have a hot meal waiting after a busy school/work day. Using tomatoes in soups, stews and casseroles may also offer more nutrition than fresh. When tomatoes are heated, the antioxidant lycopene (linked to several health benefits) is released.
Red Gold is also hosting a promotion right now where they will be giving two slow cookers PER DAY for three weeks on their facebook page. That’s a ton of slow cookers and an easy entry for you! Here’s one slow cooker idea provided by Red Gold:
Slow Cooker Macaroni & Cheese
Servings: 8 | Preparation Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 240 minutes
2 cups pasta of choice, uncooked
2 tablespoons butter
8 ounces processed American cheese, cut into cubes
8 ounces cream cheese, cut into cubes
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 cup low fat milk
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
1 (14.5 ounce) can Red Gold® Petite Diced Tomatoes With Green Chilies, drained or 2 (10 ounce) cans Red Gold® Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies , drained
Place the uncooked pasta in the bottom of a 3.5-qt. crock pot that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Add the remaining ingredients, except RED GOLD® PETITE DICED TOMATOES with GREEN CHILIES, to the slow cooker and stir until well combined. Cook on LOW for 4 hours.
Just before serving add RED GOLD® PETITE DICED TOMATOES with GREEN CHILIES; stir to combine.
