Reviews for Minestrone Stew
"Hubby and I both liked."
"Fast to make with excellent flavor. Wonderful to come home to this, thanks to the slow cooker."
"This is one of my favorite soups. I always take it to potlucks at work and it gets cleaned up every time. Very simple & inexpensive to make. I like to stock up on the cans when they go on sale & then just buy the hamburger later. Easy to double or triple as well, and it seems a great meal on a cold winter day."
"this recipe is great. i added a can of mixed veggies: corn, carrots and green beans. I also cooked this on my stove top instead of using a slow cooker and it worked just fine! i also added half a can of beef broth and a pinch of beef bullion for a bit more flavor and broth."
