Are you ready for another crock pot recipe? Of course you are! I found this here at Crockpot 365 - a blog with a year's worth of crock pot recipes! I'm impressed by that undertaking and luckily we get to reap the benefits!
Crock Pot Pasta Fagioli Recipe (slightly adapted)
makes 8-10 servings depending on what else you serve with it
1.3 lb ground turkey (1 package), browned and drained
1/2 large red onion, chopped
1 cup or so carrots, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
2 cans diced tomatoes, not drained
1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
4 cups fat free beef broth
16.5 oz pasta sauce
2 tsp oregano
1 Tbs tabasco
1/4 tsp pepper
3/4 cup dry pasta (I used elbow noodles I had on hand)
(Use a large crockpot or reduce the recipe) Put carrots, celery, and onions in crockpot. Add beans, tomatoes, and pasta sauce. Add beef broth, tabasco (don't worry it doesn't make it spicy), and seasonings. Stir in cooked turkey. Cook on low for 8 hours (or high for 4). When veggies are tender, add pasta and cook another hour on low. Serve and enjoy!
If you know me or have been reading previous posts then you know how much I love cheese! I had some shredded mozzarella and hubby had some parmesan on top. You could serve with salad too or rolls. Perhaps some 3 ingredient rolls!
