You Need to Try This Unique Penne Pasta Zuppa Recipe

Looking for a great new pasta dish to try? This penne pasta zuppa recipe is exactly what you've been wanting. It's a unique pasta recipe, so you won't have to worry about it being boring! White beans and yellow squash are two key ingredients in this recipe, setting it apart from many other pasta dishes.

Some crockpot pasta dishes require you to cook the pasta ahead of time. This adds on extra time to the overall prep and cook time. We want to keep this recipe as easy as possible, which is why we've elected to use uncooked pasta.

The pasta will cook during the final 30 minutes of cooking. This recipe takes a long time to cook, so remember that when you're planning your dinners for the week! In total, this dish will need to spend a little over ten hours cooking.

The first two hours, it will cook on high. Then, you'll turn the crockpot down to low and cook this dish for another eight hours. Finally, the pasta will be added in for the final 30 minutes. This might be one of the longer crockpot recipes out there, but it's also one of the easiest. Enjoy!
