I cooked this on the Slow Cooker setting on my multi cooker. Because of that I couldn’t do the tea towel trick so just mixed the cheese through at the end and it was good to serve. Very tasty, no over powering tomato taste either. It was so good that hubby wants the leftovers for fathers day dinner.

We had this on Thursday night omg it was so good, I put an extra jar of sauce I had in the cupboard half way through as it didn’t seem saucy enough could possibly be because I didn’t add tomatoes or mushroom which would have provided more moisture, I also cooked it a bit longer at the pasta stage as it didn’t seem the pasta would cook in time. Next time I would probably use 3/4 bag of pasta or smaller shape, 10/10 for flavour and ease ♥️

Made this tonight – used frozen vegetables and gluten free pasta – came out great and the kids approved. Will definately make again.
Cooked on low for a total of 4.5 hours (including pasta cooking time)

The initial cook time could be extended to around 4hrs low. The slow cooker in photo is 5L

Made this last night with a few modifications.
I used diced bacon instead of chorizo and omitted the spinach and mushrooms to suit my family’s taste. Used a full bag of spiral pasta and stirred through a few spoons of cream cheese in the final stage with some mozzarella cheese. Turned out quite nice and the kids even ate most of theirs

Absolutely awesome!! Perfect winter food. Super easy.
Family loved it. I added bacon; capsicum & grated zucchini. Also added cream at the cheese stage. Definitely a winner!
Thank you.

Made this for Mother’s Day dinner. Everybody loved it. No mushrooms in it for us but added a couple of chorizo sausages. Will make this again in the future

Sooo good. Doubled the jar of sauce and chicken breast. 1.5x stock. Added about 100mls sour cream for creaminess before adding cheese on top. So filling and full of flavour and a super simple way of getting your vege serves in!!!

Was a huge hit in our house tonight. Devoured by all.
I stirred through a small tub of sour cream at the end to make it more creamy.

Absolutely delicious
I don’t eat salami so I used bacon instead and added capsicum
Possibly a little too much pasta so next time I’ll only use maybe 3/4 of a bag but this will definitely be going onto my ‘family favourites’ list

This was so good! The whole family lovednit and asked formitmto be added to the family fav list! I made it to the recipe, but next time I will try a couple of modifications…
I will add some bacon, more spinach, and possibly a dash of cream at the end . There was probably a little too much pasta so I will reduce ithe pasta to 1/2-3/4 bag .
Will definitely be making this one again
