My husband loves this soup, I've made it twice and he has a bowl everyday so this week.

My husband and I loved this soup. We used less Italian seasoning because we like foods to have flavor, but not wake up the next day with that flavor. Also, I threw in just a little bit of green onion because I like the taste. We liked it better the second time around because I left it in the crockpot a couple more hours.

This had so much flavor and so easy. Instead of the water I added more vegetable broth and added some oregano. I used whole wheat elbow macaroni for the pasta. VERY GOOD!

I didnt have the vegetable broth so I substituted a chicken broth and it was just fine. We all loved this soup so much.

I made this soup yesterday & we loved it. (Well, except for my picky 5yr old...but who's asking him!?) I did go ahead and add a can of chicken to the mix to make it a bit heavier. I can't wait until summer with the possibility of adding some fresh herbs from my garden to it.

My friends and I loved it! I doubled it and made a few changes because I did. I chopped (with my wonderful Vidalia chopper) the veggies and cooked them with dressing as directed the night before. I put in bowl and refrigerated. In the a.m. I microwaved them for 3 minutes to warm up and put in crockpot and proceded with the recipe. Since the store did not sell 19 oz cans of kidney beans, I used two 15 1/2 oz. cans. As it was getting full, I ended up only adding 1 cup of water and I think this kept it more flavorful. I also could not find small shells, so used medium and they were fine. Since it was doubled, I cooked it 8 hours on HIGH and added the shells about 45 minutes before the 8 hours was up. My friends took home a copy of the recipe for themselves!!!

My husband and I enjoy soups and this one was exceptionally easy to put together. Since we like a more soupy soup, I would add another can of garden vegetable broth. I served it with bread and butter. I definitely will make this one again.

It's been a week and my husband is still complimenting me on this soup. I did add a little garlic powder, some crushed basil and dry italian seasoning in place of the italian dressing (which I was out of) and a little dry parsley. We had 2 generous meals of this soup since we thought it very complete. You can also add one can of chicken if you choose tho minestrone usually is meat less. We will definately make this again.
