Crockpot Monday: Traditional Minestrone

Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me....ahem...hi, all! Today's soup is a classic and I hope you enjoy!

Traditional Minestrone:

8 cups beef broth
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 cup dry beans of your choice, rinsed in hot water
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup sliced celery
1 Tablespoon dried minced onion (or 1 small onion, finely diced)
1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1/2 cup uncooked pasta (to add later)
Parmesan cheese (optional garnish)


Use a 6-quart crockpot. Pour broth in and add tomatoes and the beans. Add vegetables, seasoning, and thawed spinach.
Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours, or until the beans are soft. Add dry pasta, and cook on high for about 30 minutes or until pasta is done.

Serve with some warm, crusty bread and yum!
