HOMEMADE MINESTRONE SOUP {SLOW COOKER}

An easy to make, minestrone soup recipe that tastes 1000 times better than the Olive Garden’s version! My minestrone soup is loaded with good for you veggies, like spinach and zucchini. It’s also protein packed with red kidney beans and great northern beans. You’ll be full for hours from this healthy, nutritious soup!

How about I throw a whole lot of components (say, veggies, beans, and pasta) to a crockpot and call it dinner? This soup is going to be the thing. And the best part? You didn't even have to turn on the stove!

I wonder if it is even legal for me to call this a soup recipe? It and they come out in the kind of a soup. Do not you just love dinners and lunches ? This gal right this is a huge fan of these kinda meals.

I have information. I ♥ vegetables. And you knew that. And you understand it more.
