From Today's Parent magazine. This recipe works in a crockpot and freezes well. I use fresh green beans, top it with cheddar cheese and serve it with soft polenta and a salad.

Wonderful! We loved this ragout. I used a mixture of frozen green beans, yellow beans and carrots. I also added some fresh mushrooms.
