Recipe: Mediterranean Minestrone Casserole

Here is the recipe that I mentioned in my previous post.

3 medium carrots, sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup water
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 can (28 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (15 to 16 oz.) garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (6 oz.) Italian style tomato paste
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups frozen cut green beans, thawed
1 cup uncooked elbow macaroni
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

1. Mix all ingredients into crock pot except green beans, macaroni and cheese.

2.  Cover, cook on low heat setting 6 to 8 hours.

3.  Stir in green beans and macaroni.  Increase heat setting to high.  Cover and cook about 20 minutes or until beans and macaroni are tender.  Sprinkle with cheese once served in bowls.
