Minestrone Soup

Yep...that's what's cookin' in my Crock Pot right now. I thought I would share my most awesome recipe with you, my readers, so that you too can enjoy a nutrious, easy peasy, deeeeelish meal with your fam...


4 medium carrots, peeled and sliced thin
1 medium zuchini, diced (not too small)
1 medium onion, diced small
3 potatoes, diced small
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 big can of red kidney beans (drained)
1 big can of white kidney beans (drained)
1 28 oz can of diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 cup of red or white wine
1 carton of low sodium beef broth (I guess chicken or veggie broth would do too)
2 cups of water
2 tsps Italian Seasoning
2 tsps parsley flakes (this time, I used frozen parsley cubes that I happened upon at the grocery store)
3 cups cooked macaroni or shell pasta
Grated Parmesan cheese to sprinkle on each bowl

Put all ingredients into Crock Pot, except parmesan cheese and pasta.

Cook for 3-4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low. Cook pasta separately and add to soup just before serving. Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese. Serve with garlic bread.

ENJOY!! Pin It
