This recipe from one of my favourite vegetarian cookbooks 'Verdura' - Vegetables Italian Style. As I am sick today and lazy, am just taking a photo of my cookbook. As I am sick today and lazy, this was a perfect time nourishing bowl of yum. And my sick kids liked it too, at least the one with an appetite. So here it is, pop ingredients in the slow cooker like I did ('prep and forget' meal for making a hard day easier) if you like, cheat and use packet pasta if it's all you have, it still works!
