  1. Spray inside of 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Add tomato sauce, water, squash and garlic powder to slow cooker; stir to combine. Pinch sausage into bite-size pieces and place in slow cooker.

  3. Stir in pasta and spinach; cover and cook on HIGH 30 minutes more or until pasta is tender.


  • Cook's Tips
  • If refrigerated chopped butternut squash is not available, use 1 (12-ounce) package frozen chopped butternut squash. Another small pasta (macaroni, orzo or small shells) may be used in place of ditalini.
  • Did you know PAM leaves up to 99% less residue? Use it to combat hours of cooked-on food by spraying PAM on the inside of your crockpot before use. You'll avoid annoying residue and save time on cleanup.

This was delicious! I had kale to use up so used that instead of spinach. I liked the extra texture it gave to the soup. I also substituted turkey sausage and added a bit more pasta. I cut up...

This was very nice! I used mini shells because thats what I had on hand. What a great idea to put Pam Cooking Spray in the slow cooker. I use it every time now and my clean up time is cut in hal...

Easy and delicious. What more could you ask for? I used Johnsonville Hot Italian Sausage links. I just cut each one in half vertically and then cut small pieces. I didn't remove the casing. Seem...
