Slow Cooker Sausage, Bean and Pasta Stew

| 1 min read

Sausage, Bean and Pasta Stew
This stew is delicious and hearty and the recipe can easily be doubled so you have some for leftovers or freezing for later.
It’s also easy to customize to your tastes with some easy substitutions from your pantry, fridge or freezer. No Italian sausage? Use ground beef or turkey. Sub in beans you have on hand for the white beans called for and experiment with spices you enjoy from your rack. A different type of small pasta would also work well or you could omit it from the recipe. If you don’t have fresh veggies, use frozen, just add them at the end of the cooking process for 20-30 minutes.
