This recipe takes on a different twist each time it's made. I throw whatever veggies I have on hand in the crisper or freezer. This time it had an Italian flair to it but next time who knows!

It's the perfect comfort food for any chilly evening.

I run on kicks where I use my slow cooker several nights in a row during the week. For me, it's the perfect solution to getting a delicious meal on the table after a long day in the classroom. The effort level is low {just a little organization is needed} but the presentation is impressive.

Can't beat that!

That looks like something that would be a definite hit in my house. My guys LOVE chicken pot pie... I would love to throw supper I it before school and forget about it until I smell the deliciousness of it!
