    Thanks for sharing - I have a good one too that is chocked full of veggies - it was featured in the Spark People Slow cooker recipe cook book that came out of the contest. I didn't take first prize in the contest, but I appreciate that it is featured in the book.

    How do you get your pasta to stay firm and not get super mushy.

    Looks so good! I'd really have to watch it with beans, pasta and rice. Just have to be mindful of portions.
