As you know, I have what some may call an unnatural love for my slow cooker. I can’t help it; it just makes dinner so easy!  So, this week I thought I would share another great slow cooker recipe! This one I got from my Dad, and I am not sure where he got it but my husband and I LOVE this recipe. It is a staple in our house (pretty much every other week). How can you go wrong with a 4 ingredient recipe that you set and forget?

Although the photo shows this served over whole wheat pasta, it is also great with brown rice.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
