So on a busy day when we want something flavorful, healthy and easy this fits the bill. A few minutes of chopping and prepping and you are off. Even better, chop and prep the night before. Then all you have to do is wake up, dump everything in the slow cooker and go on about your day.
The best part is coming home to dinner that is almost ready to go. Throw in some pasta, crank'er up and kick off your shoes. Before you know it you'll have a hot bowl of soup in your hand and a smile on your face. Just like that! The best part is the flavors and the pasta are kid friendly too. It is a dinner everyone will love without any fuss!
