Slow Cooker Sausage and Bean Stew

I love using my slow cooker.  It’s such an easy way to make a delicious meal and let me tell you, this sausage and bean stew is one delicious meal.

 It’s hearty and flavorful, with just a little kick from the red pepper flakes.  It’s perfect served with hunk of nice crusty bread to sop up all that delicious sauce.

On a side note, I found these heirloom carrots at my grocery store and I thought they were so cool.  They were purple, yellow and orange, have you ever seen these before?

I used them in this stew since that’s what I had on hand.  You, of course, can use whatever you have on hand, but if you can find these, I thought they were kind of fun!
