Hearty Pasta Tomato Soup Recipe

"I adapted the original recipe for this flavorful soup so I could make it in the slow cooker," writes Lydia Kroese from Minnetonka, Minnesota. "It's ideal for staff luncheons at the school where I work, since we don't have easy access to a stove or oven."

"This is a wonderful recipe. I add the zucchini closer to the end because I don't like it to be over cooked. My family loves this soup and I've had a lot of recipe requests.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 12, 2008

"This is a great soup recipe. And so easy. I did however make afew changes. I changed the zucchini to fresh green beans that I microwaved first so they would not be crunchy. Added 2 small potatoes that I peeled and then chopped.I blended the mushrooms so that my picky eaters could not pick them out. And added spiral pasta instead of the tortellini. Thanks for a wonderful recipe Lydia."
