Recipe: Cheesy One Pot Sausage & Veggie Pasta from Slow Cooker Central by Paulene Christie

A complete child friendly meal served right from your slow cooker. This is sausages, pasta and vegetables with a cheesy twist! Kids of all ages will love this one – even toddlers can get their self-feeding perfected with this easy meal.

Serves 6

•Preparation 15 mins•

Cook 5 hours 10 mins•

Cooker capacity 6 litres

500 g (1 lb 2 oz) diced mixed vegetables (I used a bag of frozen veggies)

100 g (3½ oz) diced bacon

16 pork chipolata sausages, halved (or 8 regular pork sausages cut into quarters)

400 g (14 oz) can diced tomatoes

½ cup BBQ sauce

1 cup macaroni pasta

1 cup grated tasty cheese

Parmesan cheese, optional, to serve

1. Place the vegetables into the slow cooker. Add the bacon and sausages.

Combine the tomatoes, BBQ sauce and ½ cup of water and pour over.

2. Cover and cook on LOW for 4½ hours.

3. Add 1 cup hot water and the pasta. Cover and cook on LOW for a further

40 minutes or until pasta is cooked to your liking. Keep an eye on it during this stage, as if your cooker is hotter than others it may need extra water. Just add ½ cup at a time if you think its needed.

4. Stir the tasty cheese through then serve. You can also top with a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese if you like.
