Cheesy One Pot Sausage & Veg Pasta 5 0 5 19

A complete child friendly meal served right from the single pot of your slow cooker. Sausages, pasta and vegetables with a cheesy twist!

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 5 hrs 10 mins
  • 15 mins

    5 hrs 10 mins

    5 hrs 25 mins

  • Yields: 6


16 small pork chipolata sausages cut in half (or 8 regular pork sausages cut into quarters)

500g of small diced mixed vegetables (I used a bag of frozen veg)

100g diced bacon

400g can of crushed tomatoes

1/2 cup BBQ sauce

1 cup of raw macaroni pasta

1.5 cups water (total)

1 cup grated tasty

Parmesan cheese to serve


1Add vegetables to slow cooker

2Add bacon and cut, raw sausages

3Combine tomatoes, BBQ sauce, and just half a cup of water and pour over

4Cook on low for 4.5hrs

5Add the remaining 1 cup of water (hot) and raw pasta. The additional water will be absorbed by your pasta during cooking

6Cook on low for an additional 40mins or until pasta is cooked to your liking.

7Just keep an eye on it during this stage as if your cooker is hotter than others it may need extra water but just add 1/2 cup at a time if you think it's needed.

8Stir through tasty cheese then serve

9Top with a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese for a complete one pot meal for the whole family

I have cooked this a few times now, the grandkids love it.

The very first step is to add vegetables?

Delicious and easy
As a mum of 3, I’m always looking for dishes that are quick and easy…. this is definitely one of those.

The recipe doesn’t state when to put the veggies in so I added mine at the start with the bacon and sausages….
Turned out perfect

Oh this was yummy! Even miss 6 ate without a fuss and that was a shock to us as shes normally very fussy! Will definitely make again.

Paulene shared this on FB with just a photo of the ingredients. As I was scrolling I stopped and thought “I have all of that!” And threw it straight on! My family of 7 (hubby and kids ranging from 20 – 11 cleaned their plates. Such an easy dish and so yum! 20 year old said “Mum you can make that dish any time you like” 😂

Absolutely loved this.
A nice & easy recipe, with little effort. Yay.
A huge hit with the teenage sons too, another big bonus.

I made this last night. I tasted a spoon full of veggies and sauce just before I added the cheese . When I ate the meal I thought it was very “gluggy”. When I make it again I’ll leave out the cheese, I preferred the taste without it. I’ll probably also lightly brown the sausages for the texture.

Absolutely delicious! I used passat instead of crushed tomatoes and didn’t add the water (750ml bottle of passat) turned out perfectly!

How does this freeze?

Loved it! I added frozen spinach with the veg. I also added Garlic Salt; Pepper; chicken stock & crushed garlic to the sauce before pouring over. Yum.
Was meant to be a “kids” meal but hubby is currently on his second bowl… 🤣
Thank you! Will be my go to for the kids & hubby x

I’d use any sausages you like so why not try them too 🙂

Hey. A butcher near me makes Beef, Cheese and Vegemite Sausages – which the kids (even me after saying “yuck” – they are so yum) would they suit this recipe? Thanks x

I was searching the recipes looking for something that would appeal to my fussy daughter.

She loves pasta & sausages so I thought I would give this a try.

It was a hit she said “mmm this is so tasty, it’s unreal”

I even had seconds.

great recipe, used ham instead of bacon as it had to be used, added extra half cup of pasta and added cheese after serving, as freezing the extra servings. Will definatly make again

Very happy with this dish. My husband loved it, it was very tasty.

Good on you lad! 🙂 That’s what I love to hear! xx

This recipe appears in the ‘Slow Cooker for Kids’ book, so Master Ten made it last night. It was a hit from the point of view of it’s simplicity and also it’s flavour. He was very proud of himself and we scored the dish 8/10, and he’s keen to make it again!

Tried this tonight, it was good but not 100% for my liking. Partner loved the sausages. I added about 1tsp of beef stock powder as I thought it need a little extra flavour.
Even though it wasnt for my liking I will remember it for when our little man starts eating slow cooker meals ☺️

Whole family loved it, Such an easy meat and 4 veg. Delicious!

Cooked this tonight. Was a hit with my 1 year old. Partner who wasnt hungry ate a whole bowl!
I didnt need to add the extra cup of water as there was plenty in there 😊


April 7, 2018

I didn’t have can tomato used half a jar of chunky pasta sauce
See how we go , grandkids are staying overnight fingers crossed they’ll eat it lol

I to was skeptical about this dish but this is now a goto recipe for me. My toddler likes it, I can pack it with vegies and I enjoy eating it.


February 11, 2018

Yummy! I was a little skeptical about this one but man I was wrong. This was delicious. I used all the left over veggies from the fridge, just normal Aldi pork sausages and I forgot the cheese and it was delicious!

I’d add it before serving when heating it tomorrow 🙂

If I’m making this now for tomorrow night, should I add cheese today or before serving

This recipe worked really well. Quick and easy to prep, it makes a good weekday dinner. I used diced carrots, capsicum, cauliflower, and celery as my vegetables and the family loved it. I’ll make this again.

Trying this one on the kids tonight, I will post their verdict !


September 21, 2017

Cooked this the other night. One of the simplest slow cooker recipes that I’ve made! I used fresh veg (diced carrot) initially – then added thawed frozen peas and finely chopped spinach when I added the pasta (to keep their colour and texture).
Simple flavours – was a hit with my husband and 3 year old! Will definitely make this again.
I did need an extra 1/2 cup of water towards the end. In future I would cook for 3.5 hours on low then add the pasta, as my slow cooker seems fairly hot.
