Slow Cooker Veal Stew with Squash and Mushrooms

Here is a stew recipe that makes use of the slow cooker to get veal to a state of soft and tender perfection. Veal is the only ingredient in this recipe to be prepared in the slow cooker. The squash and mushrooms are sautéed separately in a frying pan. The side dish I like to use with this stew is pasta with preferably large shapes, such as bow ties.
