This is a great weeknight dinner option. It's creamy, filling, packed with veggies, and the best part is you can just throw everything in the slow cooker and forget about it. Using squares of puff pastry baked separately keeps it easy and worry free. Plus - you don't have to worry about the pastry getting soggy when reheated because you just bake it as needed.
Fall for us means lots of hearty meat dishes and stews, especially after a summer bursting with vegetables and salads. Pulled pork is one of Jasper's most requested dishes and I was more than happy to make it for him. It's actually a pretty versatile dish - we prefer to eat it in sandwiches, but it's also great in tacos, over rice or mashed potatoes, and as the base for a stew when you are getting bored towards the end of the leftovers.
