This winter has been filled with blizzards, sub zero temperatures, and couch ridden colds. So I have been using my crockpot so often it has actually just started living on the countertop. One of my favorites I have been making this winter is Crockpot Minestrone.
I have actually made this Crockpot Minestrone so many times my husband asked me to give it a rest for a week or two… Seriously though I made this probably 4 times in a 2 week time span, and this soup makes a ton so that meant a lot of Minestrone for lunch as well as dinners. Minestrone seriously rules our life.
So I love this soup because it is seriously jam packed full of healthy vegetables. Throughout the holidays it became my go to for a healthy meal. As far as crockpot meals go, this one does take me an extra few minutes to throw together, mostly just because it is so full of delicious ingredients there is just a lot to add to the pot, but it is so worth it. Infinity times better then any store bought variety and this recipe makes a large amount of soup. Perfect for a large family, friend get together, or leftover lunches for the week.
TIPS & TRICKS:
• This does make quite a bit so it is great for a large group or be prepared to have leftovers
• The secret ingredient in this Crockpot Minestrone is the pesto, I think it truly makes the soup
• While you are dicing up the celery, carrots, and onion, dice up the zucchini at the same time at place it back in the fridge to save you more time later
