My mother-in-law introduced me to this soup, which is so full of intense, vibrant flavor. It’s a great supper in a bowl, perfect for these cold nights. Feel free to add or omit any vegetables—that’s the magic of soups: there’s no right or wrong!
Prepare the Slow Cooker Minestrone Soup
1. Place all ingredients except pasta in a slow cooker and cook on low for six to eight hours.
2. Remove the chicken and shred. Return to the soup.
3. During the last hour, cook pasta separately and then add to the pot, or add it to the pot raw. (I like to cook the pasta separately as I find that the starch in the pasta makes the soup too thick.)
