This beautifully delicious medley definitely filled up my crock pot! But the vegetables were still raw after two hours, and we are not into crunchy onion or green beans. It took my crock pot 4 hours. Maybe if the onion and green beans had been cut smaller the time frame stated would have worked?? There was lots of liquid in the pot so next time will omit the oil, and add twice as much garlic. Besides being lovely to behold, the picky eater can pick out exactly what they want or do not want to eat. This is easily assembled and with a liner inside the crock pot is an easy clean up. I suppose that you could season it differently-rosemary, thyme, or Italian seasonings but basil is nice. Thanks ratherbeswimmin' for posting a keeper. Made for Crock Pot Photo Challenge.
