We made this recipe from Eat at Home Cooks two weeks ago and I loved it, so much so that while visiting my in-laws I made it for them again last night! It's such an easy way to cook up a bunch of veggies, and since the sauce is gluten free (my mother-in-law eats a gluten free diet), we easily cooked up gluten free pasta to make a simple gluten free meal for her too.

I've just about decided it's my new go-to simple crockpot meal because it tastes great, and there's just nothing like coming home to a home smelling like a yummy Italian meal. It's an easy way to change out every day spaghetti, and we'll definitely add it to our menu plan at least once a month!
