Slow Cooker Tomato Bacon Pasta Dish

I took a gamble on this one. The idea came from a recipe we all liked for a baked tomato soup and bacon/pasta casserole. I added fresh tomatoes and zucchini for a little added nutrition.

Here's the basic recipe I used:

Slow Cooker Tomato Bacon w/pasta

2 cans tomato soup
1 can milk
8 oz. cheese
2 cups diced tomatoes (I used fresh)
2 cups diced zucchini
1 lb bacon (anything with this much bacon is going to be good;)
3/4 package penne pasta -half was whole wheat, half regular

Spray crockpot. Put all ingredients in the crockpot on low for 6 hours. Add pasta for last 40 minutes of cooking, depending on how hot your crock runs. I check it every 10 minutes after the first 20 when dealing with pasta. Add more liquid if neccessary.
