I didn't even think about adding it later until I was already serving dinner. lol It didn't ruin it, though, and that's a good thing. :0)

Thanks for your advice and tips.

Baby steps will get you where you need to go. . .eventually...you just have to start out by taking the first step.

Latte, depending on your browser, the location might be different, but up on your navigation bar, where the back and forward and home buttons are, etc., there is a large white box, usually with some sort of go button to the right of it. That is your navigation box. Highlight the address I put in, right click on it. In the menu that pops up, left click on copy. Now go to your navigation bar, right click on it, then left click on paste. Now just hit your go or arrow or whatever is on the right-hand end of your nav box and your browser should take you to the site.

Mel, I usually wait and add the pasta no more than an hour before you're going to eat. Make sure there's enough liquid in the pot for the pasta to absorb. There's a gal out on the net who is the expert on crockpots. Paste this into your navigation box and check out A Year of Crockpotting. This link is for the alphabetical recipe listing, but she has a Q and A section that I found very helpful when I reentered the world of crockpotting! Dive in and enjoy - it makes life, and healthy meals, so much easier!

I tried to make it a link with the add-a-link button, but I must be doing something wrong. Sorry

When I add pasta to the crockpot I usually cook it first and then add at the end to get warmed. Good luck. Everyone deals with it differently.

I'm new to the crock pot thing. Is there a trick to cooking pasta in the pot that keeps it from basically falling apart?

Today I made Pasta e Fagioli from a non-crock pot cookbook in the crock pot. I'm thinking I should have waited to put the pasta in later, instead of adding it with everything else. Am I right? If so, how much later; or how long before cooking is done?
