mmmm!!! I just tried my first recipe from my cookbook. It was awesome! It was a ziti casserole. Not 5 ingredients or less, but really really good. In a skillet, You sautee 1 minced onion until it softens, and then add two cloves of minced garlic until the garlic becomes fragrant. Then add that and a large can on crushed tomatoes, 1/2 cup of dry red wine, 1 cup of hot water, and 12 ounces of vegetarian burger crumbles. Stir it up, and cook on low for 3.5 hours. Then add 8 ounces of ziti (precooked) and cook another 20-30 minutes. Garnish with some chopped parsley and basil and sprinkle with Parmesan. It was a huge hit tonight. Not the easiest recipe from the book, but I wanted to make something pretty special tonight because we were having company (btw, they loved it and didn't even notice that it was vegetarian).
PS. Kat, the book is called "Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker"...Enjoy!
