  • Instructions:
  • In a large crock pot pour out half the can of tomatoes.
  • Season stew meat with garlic salt and add to crock pot.
  • Add in chopped zucchini, onion,  and garlic and sprinkle with salt about 1/2tsp then top with remaining tomatoes and stir together.
  • You can either cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8.
  • Once the cook time is up add in the beef stock stir with stew and taste to see if it need salt and or pepper before adding the pasta. Once satisfied with the taste add  the entire box of pasta. If you want less carbs you can do 1 cup of stock and half a box. You can also skip the pasta all together and put over rice, quinoa, anything you like!
