Slimming World Pasta
I first made this slimming world pasta bake recipe after returning to slimming world in late 2012. I was just throwing everything into the slow cooker and was amazed how well it came together for hardly any effort.
There was a fridge clear out involved and when I was done, I realised that it looked like a pasta bake version of a slimming world ratatouille. It was absolutely delicious, and I was so pleased the results.
Over the years I have changed it a little, but I still find myself going back to this slimming world Mediterranean vegetable bake.
In case you are wondering what it is like, then imagine a slimming world tomato pasta bake. One that is loaded with tomatoes, pasta and summer vegetables and that is what you have.
It is also ideal if other members of your family are not on slimming world because it doesn’t come across as a healthy syn free pasta recipe.
Is Pasta Free On Slimming World?
Yes it is. If you want to eat pasta everyday on slimming world then you can. But my own personal experience, is that I often bloat when eating pasta and if I eat pasta on slimming world I wont lose any weight that week.
You might also want to know how much pasta you can eat on slimming world? Well, in my current slimming world book its as much as I want.
Slimming World Pasta Salad
The beauty of this slimming world pasta salad is that it can be served hot or cold.
I love it in the summer as a pasta salad and I will serve it cold with a side salad.
Or let’s say you are going to a barbecue and want to keep your syns in check. Then take this pasta salad with you and you know then you have something syn free to enjoy.
Even better, because it does so well cold, you can also have it as your slimming world work lunch or for your beach picnic.
The picture above is one of the containers I use for my slimming world pasta when I am taking it to the beach. You can also use these type of containers in the freezer and freeze your leftovers for another time.

Tried this tonight, dead easy and very tasty for even my fussy daughter. We all wanted more. The slow cooker is clogged at the bottom with food burnt to the side. We had it on high for the 4 horus, is that right? or do u start low and then at half way when you add stock whackit up to full?
Thank you for the rating! Halfway through the cooking did you add the vegetable stock and keep stirring the food throughout the cooking? If you did then may be like you say start off on medium then whack it up to high for the remainder of the time. Ours turns out ok but is quite a new slow cooker so won´t stick very much and it did not stick alot for us.

The size of the can is 28oz, as you can see here on Amazon:

Do you put cooked pasta in the crockpot? Or uncooked?
It was uncooked pasta we used in this recipe ?
Can you have this cold and how long it keep in fridge I am thinking lunch in work thankyou
Yes it will be fine cold. We have it cold a lot on our summer picnics on the beach and love it. It will keep for 3-4 days so perfect for work lunches.
Hi, do you add 200ml or 250ml of veg stock? Ingredients say one way but recipe the other? Thanks
It is 250 ml not 200 ml thanks for letting us know 🙂
Has this recipe changed recently? I’m sure i wrote down the ingredients right last week and I’ve come back to make it today and it seems different? I’m sure i wouldn’t have bought garlic puree for no reason??
Yes we changed the recipe last week, sorry if you were in the middle of getting the food for it, we hope we have made it better for you 🙂
Hi can this be frozen.
Yes it can ????
Hi, I’m thinking of making this for a get together, which would involve me cooking it the day before needed. Does the meal reheat ok in the slow cooker (I’m concerned that the pasta might turn to mush).
Yes you are correct the pasta would turn to mush, but depending non what time the you are eating you could prepare all everything the night before leave it in the fridge and then with it only taking 4 hours to cook it would be great to serve it fresh 🙂
