I made today this whilst suffering from a 5+ day flu/cold. Normally I would have just reached for the good old chicken soup, but as I am trying to go vegan that isn't really on the menu plan. *cough* Feeling the need to desperately fill myself with vitamins I started reaching for any veggies I had in my kitchen. *cough, cough* SO the recipe that follows is what came from my crockpot. I'm told it was VERY tasty, but I will just have to take her word for it until I can breathe again. *sniff, suffer, cough, groan* I'm sure it could be made better with whole grain pasta (I used mini ziti, but I didn't have the energy to fight with the computer to explain what mini ziti is *cough evil robot! Cough*) and other veggies (wish I had had a sweet potato), but I'm not in the grocery shopping mood right now. *cough, cough* Let me know if it is good. I probably won't know for a few days yet. *sigh*
- Chop veggies in large irregular shapes so they don't disappear and make this a soup instead of a stew. Add all ingredients including uncooked pasta into crockpot, and put the lid on. Set on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6 hours. Serve with hot sauce if desired.
