Can I make this in the slow cooker?
As with any soup or stew, you can easily make this in a crock pot or slow cooker if you want to keep every ingredient fresh and soft. Ensuring that all flavors and seasonings come together for a perfect marriage of flavors. Using a slow cooker or a crock pot makes it so you can start everything (minus the pasta) in the morning and when you get home it’s ready to serve. We recommend making the pasta a few minutes before you are serving it to make sure they hold its shape. Browning the meat is always recommended ahead of adding it to your crock pot. It adds slight crispiness to your beef and holds the flavor on the inside.
If I have other vegetables I want to add, is that okay?
