1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon each: oregano, basil

1/4 teaspoon each: salt, pepper

1 beef bouillon cube

1 medium zucchini or yellow squash, cut lengthwise and sliced

In a 5-6 quart slow cooker, combine all the ingredients except the squash. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-6 hours. Add squash to the cooker 30 minutes before serving. Serve over cooked pasta (bow tie, rotini or elbow noodles) and top with grated Parmesan, if desired. Enjoy!
