Just wondering, as i'm currently doing a chicken and tomatey thingy in there, and would like to serve it with pasta.

I don't mean cooking it for hours and hours, but maybe half hour before taking out, bunging some pasta in - d'you reckon it'd be ok?

I think so. Oooh I've got a lovely beef in ale casserole sat in the slow cooker ready to ping on via the timer soon so we've got a warming comforting meal later (I'm working today so can't do me normal roast). I'm going to pop some lovely herby dumplings in for the last half hour <mmmmmm emoticon>

I've cooked it before and it was a bit on the floppy side like you've cooked it for too long - maybe i did...

It sounds lush though what you're making.

I love my slow cooker, through all in the morning then at tea time it's all cooked.

Hey Dee, I have done it with rice before and it was soo good. Just checked and my slow cooker recipe book says you can add small pasta shapes 30-45 minutes before the end of cooking.

Bumping for you.

I've just dug my slowcooker out for the first time this year and have a lentil chilli bubbling away in there: it smells fab!

that is good to know!

(though at first glance i thought the title was can you do pasta in the shower?). hmm.
