I was very surprised by how good this recipe actually was. I am not a big soup person but I love using the slow cooker and this was a great experience for me. Very easy to make and I wouldnt change anything!

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.

This was great to make when I had lots of leftovers and little time. For fun, I added some spinach to thebrest of ingredients you mentioned. Thank you. It was very good. Post more recipes!

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.

This is a very tasty filling soup to warm up with on a cold winter day

I made the recipe as posted. Don't let the short list of ingredients fool you. This turned out very good.

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.
