Crock Pot Minestrone Soup

Onion, chopped
1 medium
Carrots, sliced
2 large
Zucchini, diced
1 large
Cabbage, shredded
1 cup
Minced garlic
2 cloves
Kidney beans
1-15 oz can drained
Beef broth
2 14 1/2 oz cans
Crushed tomatoes
28 oz can
Dried basil
1 tsp
Dried oregano
1/2 tsp
1/2 tsp
Black pepper
1/4 tsp
Elbow macaroni, cooked
2 cups
Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup

  1. Combine all ingredients in a crock pot, except the macaroni and parmesan cheese.
  2. Cook on low for 7-9 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.
  3. Right before serving stir in the macaroni and parmesan cheese.
This is a great healthy soup with lots of veggies.  Put in the crock pot in the morning, forget about it and dinner will be ready.  Usually have lots of left overs too.
Wash and cut up your vegetables.
 Involve your little helper if you have one.  Anna has to help with everything these days : )
 Dump all your ingredients into the crock pot, except parmesan cheese and noodles.  Cook on low for 7-9 hours or high for 4-5 hours.
Right before your soup is done.  Prepare your noodles according to package directions.  The recipe called for macaroni noodles, but I didn't have so used mini bow ties, which turned out good.  Add parmesan cheese and as many noodles as you like to your soup.  Enjoy!
