Slow cooker minestrone soup, from Skinnytaste
A really, really good soup can stand a bit of fiddling with the recipe. Gina's Crock Pot minestrone soup, from Skinnytaste, overflows with goodness. Substitute freely with vegetables, pasta and beans that you have on hand; purée the beans to thicken the soup, or don't. Add some turkey meatballs, if you're not making this for Meatless Monday. It's all up to you. This recipe works on the stove top, of course, but Gina has adapted it for the slow cooker, for days when you'd rather be out raking leaves or playing football than tending the stove.
