Minestrone Soup – Slow Cooker

This recipe is so flexible. Basically you can use whatever vegetables you have. If you have left over cooked veggies just add them with the pasta at the end. If you have left over meat from some meal, throw it in too! My mom makes this about once a month and every time I’ve tried it, it’s been delicious. It makes a ton so you can use it for a couple of meals including lunches!
