Beans and pasta (crockpot)

Beans and Pasta

This meal had a GREAT flavor/taste! However, the pasta was mushy and the liquid had cooked down so it was definitely not a stew! OK, so I left it in the crockpot for 10 hours instead of the prescribed 5-6. I will definitely make this again. I will cook it less time (or add more broth) AND I will cook my pasta seperatly and add into the crockpot 15 minutes or so before avoid the mush factor!

1 cup tomatoes, chopped
3/4 cup macaroni shells, uncooked
1/4 cup onions, chopped
1/4 cup green bell peppers, chopped
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 clove garlic, chopped
15 oz can kidney beans, drained
8 ounce can garbanzo beans, drained
14 1/2 ouz can fat free chicken broth

1. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker
2. Cook on low 5-6 hours

Note: To add some zing, stir in 1/3 cup salsa during last 15 minutes of cooking time.
