This was a good base recipe... My husband thought it was kind of thin compared to our favorite Italian restaurant's Minestrone, so... I've changed it just a bit... I've browned the meat and added the browning juices to the crock pot. But it still seems thin. If anybody has any ideas to make it heartier without thickening it I'd be interested in your ideas. I really do like the recipe. It is really easy with pretty good results. My husband is picky.
I loved it, anything for the crock pot is a winner to me.
This soup is delicious. I will be making it again!
