As a child, we did a family vacation to Amish country near Lancaster, Pennsylvania. We stayed at a Bed & Breakfast that was also a working farm, complete with horses and chickens. Every day the mom would make us homemade meals that created lasting memories to this day. I still remember the baked oatmeal and blueberry buckle cakes she made. I also remember the soups and homemade breads! This recipe for Chilly Day Soup is a very popular recipe in Amish families. I just did some minor tweaking to make this slow cooker ready and added some additional flavoring with chicken broth. The traditional recipe is actually vegetarian. Though I think I would add cut up chicken breasts next time for some added protein and texture. Either way, it’s totally delicious!

Note: I have come to find out that gluten free pasta does NOT hold up to slow cooking. It’s just too delicate. So, unfortunately, you’ll need to add the pasta in during the last 15-20 minutes of cooking. Or cook it separately and stir it in once you’re ready to eat. But that adds another pot and a separate step. Which kind of defeats the purpose of a slow cooker, don’t you think?
