"It's a snap to put together this hearty soup before I leave for work," says Charla Tinney of Tyrone, Oklahoma. "I just add cooked pasta when I get home, and I have a few minutes to relax before supper is ready."

"Great soup! Mmmm-mmmm Good! IMHO this is one of those recipes that some of the ingredients can be switched for others, or some left out. I happened to have a summer squash and used that along with the zucchini. I didn't use the green beans, but used mushrooms instead. Also used bow tie pasta instead of the macaroni. One more change, to cut down on the sodium I used home-made chicken broth, to which I never add salt. Served the soup with Bacon-Chive-Cheese Scones."

"im wondering why a soup with fully cooked ingredients needs to be cooked for 4 to 5 hours? This sounds like it could be thrown together in 20 minutes on the stovetop."

"I just made this for lunch. It took just a couple of minutes to dump everything in the crock pot (I used a 2 qt and it worked fine). Went to church and added the pasta when I got home. Heated some whole wheat rolls and tah-dah, lunch with zero fuss. And it's delicious! I didn't change a thing."
