SLOW COOKER MINESTRONE SOUP

 I woke up to snow in Indiana today so I thought what a perfect day for soup!! This recipe is wonderful and perfect!! Great suggestion with the vegetable base, the soup is absolutely delish! I’ll have to freeze some for later. Thank you!


Incredibly flavorful and rich, this minestrone soup is every bit as hearty as it is beautiful. Made easily in the slow cooker, this soup is perfect for a busy weeknight!
