Slow cookers are such a great investment. They easily turn what would be super complicated, time-consuming recipes into great meals that can be completed with as little effort and time spent in the kitchen as possible. My Pinterest collection of slow cooker recipes is through the roof, but my absolute favorites just have to be the ones that make some of my favorite pasta dishes even easier to make!
