Minestrone Lamb Stew

    8 hours 5 min

    Full flavoured lamb stew made in the slow cooker with Heinz Minestrone Soup. Serve with dumplings and crusty bread for an easy, economical and tasty family meal. I wanted to create a comforting dish to prepare ahead that was simple and tasty - Heinz Soup is a store cupboard favourite which offered an easy solution.

    Very easy and very tasty. I used lamb steaks which I cut into thirds and served with rice and mixed veg. Definitely cook this one again!  -  19 Apr 2015
