How to make it

  • Add tomatoes, beans, sausage, onion, garlic, tapenade and salt and pepper to slow cooker.
  • Cook on low for about 5-7 hours, until flavors are well blended and meat is done.
  • Add ricotta cheese and stir, while still cooking on low. This will not be "pretty", as the ricotta leaves a bit of color and texture as it mixes in, but it doesn't "turn" and it tastes great :)
  • Fold in cooked pasta.
  • Serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese, if desired
  • *please note, this will fill a large slow cooker.... cut the recipe in half, if desired, to be more manageable.
