Welcome to my Syn Free Slimming World Vegetable Pasta in the Slow Cooker. Full with Slimming World speed vegetables and perfect for an easy dinner while keeping your Syns to zero. Also perfect for a meal to share with your family.

When Kyle was little (he is 16 this year) he had a school friend. She was fussy and as her mum said would never eat.

She loved her toast for supper, would have some cereal for breakfast but the rest of the time was never really that bothered for food.

So her mum would just hope that she would eat what she had and sometimes she would and sometimes she wouldn’t.

Her mum was not a very good cook and it was her one and only child so she never really knew what to feed her so when she came for a sleepover at our house I knew I had my work cut out.

I went for the kid friendly classic that every kid in the land loves…..and without further introduction that is the beloved PASTA.

Every kid loves pasta and you can see why. That lovely texture, the sauce, the flavourings they all shout out the best of the comfort food bunch.

I made a delicious pasta with vegetables, tomatoes and loads of Italian seasoning because that is how I LOVE my pasta.

She ate it all and even had seconds and it felt like a real triumph in the mum knows best department.

Her mum was shocked and I shared with her loads of my pasta recipes.

The little girl was called Ellie and she was beautiful and she will be 15 years old now. I haven’t seen her since Kyle changed schools in the autumn of 2006.

I often wonder what she is like now and how her food cravings have changed.

This is one of my favourite tomato based pasta recipes that I especially made for Ellie all those years ago.

But unlike back then when I made it with 3 pans, this is exclusively made on the slow cooker setting with my Instant Pot.

If you are on Slimming World and you want that go to Slimming World pasta recipe that you can share with your family then this is it.

Plus it is loaded with vegetables and not a single bit of fat in sight.

Syn Free Slimming World Vegetable Pasta In The Slow Cooker

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time4 hrs
Total Time4 hrs 5 mins

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Clean your vegetables. Dice your cherry tomatoes into quarters. Chop your courgette and red pepper into small cubes. Thinly slice your mushrooms.
  • Place your vegetables and your pasta into the Slow Cooker.
  • Add the seasoning and a can of tinned tomatoes and cook for 4 hours.
  • Halfway through add 250ml of vegetable stock, stir and place the lid back on.
  • Once the 4 hours is up serve with fresh tomatoes and fresh herbs.

Notes

I always add the stock later because it gives the chance for the tinned tomatoes to soak up into the pasta and gives it a much better flavour.
If you want a creamy sauce style dish either add another tin of tinned tomatoes or 150g of soft cheese at the halfway mark.
Always think about your portion control. I used 1 cup of Fusilli pasta for each person. You don’t need more than this. If you don’t have your own set of cups then I suggest you use a measuring jug and measure pasta out to the 250ml mark. Or add 1 litres worth of pasta to feed 4 people.

    Tried this tonight, dead easy and very tasty for even my fussy daughter. We all wanted more. The slow cooker is clogged at the bottom with food burnt to the side. We had it on high for the 4 horus, is that right? or do u start low and then at half way when you add stock whackit up to full?

    • Hi Dave,

      Thank you for the rating! Halfway through the cooking did you add the vegetable stock and keep stirring the food throughout the cooking? If you did then may be like you say start off on medium then whack it up to high for the remainder of the time. Ours turns out ok but is quite a new slow cooker so won´t stick very much and it did not stick alot for us.

      Kind Regards

      Sam

    • Hi Diana,

      Yes it will be fine cold. We have it cold a lot on our summer picnics on the beach and love it. It will keep for 3-4 days so perfect for work lunches.

      Kind regards
