It’s not often that you have a friendly conversation with a reader via email. These days, I usually interact with people through social media. But I recently got an email from someone who stumbled upon my recipe for Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Buddha Bowl.
They were planning to make that recipe, but wondered if I had plant-based slow cooker recipes I could share. As I scrolled through my files, I realized I wasn’t. None of my plant-based recipes have been made in the slow cooker.
So I started brainstorming and Pasta Fagioli immediately came to mind. This Italian dish (pronounced “Pasta Fazool”) is made with pasta and beans in a tomato broth.
I remember my mother doing this quite often. It was always such a warm, comforting and filling meal. While mom makes her Fagioli Pasta on the stove with bacon, I’m making a vegan version in the slow cooker.
Fagioli Slow Cook Vegan Pasta This
Fagioli slow cooker vegan
is very easy to put together. Just add everything but the pasta to the slow cooker. When it’s ready, serve it over cooked pasta or your favorite small pasta.
That’s how easy this recipe is. Ready? Add all ingredients in the slow cooker except pasta. That’s basically it!
You can use several different beans
in this recipe, but it had some large, creamy butter beans to use. I also added some red beans. I crushed half of the beans before adding them to my slow cooker.
Before opening the lid above and adjusting the time and temperature, season with salt and pepper. If desired, add a pinch of red pepper flakes. Then, stir everything up. Place the lid on top and cook for 8 hours over low heat (or 4 hours up).
Now, you can add raw pasta to the slow cooker about 30 minutes before serving. But mom always serves this separately and instead spoons the Fagioli Pasta over pasta bowls.
Fagioli pasta and pasta separate is also a good way to prevent pasta from becoming mushy when storing leftovers. When you’re ready to eat, place leftovers over pasta, heat and enjoy!
This satisfying Italian dish is easy to make, hearty and delicious! If you’re cutting back on meat this year, this is a great vegan dish to add to your menu!
