Recipe

Have a bunch of extra vegetables laying around? The this is the perfect recipe for you. Traditionally cooked low and slow on the stove-top, this simpler version is made in the slow cooker and served with crispy polenta rounds. Since it low in protein, consider adding chickpeas, chicken, or some sauteed shrimp to the dish to make it a more complete meal. It also makes a great side dish or pasta sauce. I served mine with some crumbled goat cheese and fresh basil.
