A quick throw together for stunning flavour. I added a bit of sambal oelek (chilli) for spice, and I’ll be doing that again. Love this so much that I made extra for my work lunches (freeze and re-heat works well). This will be a regular item in my menu, even though I’m not vegetarian.

Cooked this today, the family loved it. I want to try this in the 1.5 litre slow cooker, so I can make small batches for lunches. It is very tasty indeed, and will be a regular event at our place. Note, instead of using just cheddar, I added some parmesan.

What IS the tea towel trick, please? I’m new to using my slow cooker. Thankyou.

It’s high 2-3hrs 🙂

Hi, Would this be 2-3 hours on high or 4-6 hours on low?

I’m not certain which they used but I usually use dry myself

You could use any size the ingredients fit into… just keep in mind an emptier cooker may cook faster 🙂

Hello. I prepared it with whatever pasta I had, didn’t have lasagna sheets. Anyways, it turned out to be great!!! My 8 year old son who is quite picky had 2 portions, so it speaks for itself. Thanks 🙂 ♥️

Do you not layer the vegetables and pasta sheets?
