Healthy Slow Cooker Minestrone Soup

I love experimenting with healthy soup recipes during the colder fall and winter months. I tried this Slow Cooker Minestrone Soup Recipe which we enjoyed this past weekend.

Healthy Minestrone Soup

4 cups Vegetable Broth
4 cups Tomato Juice
1 Tbsp. dried basil
1 Tsp. salt
1/2 Tsp. dried oregano leaves
1/4 Tsp. pepper
2 medium carrots, sliced
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 cup sliced mushrooms or 1 can sliced drained mushrooms
2 garlic cloves finely chopped
1 can (28 oz) diced tomatoes with olive oil & seasoning
1 and 1/2 cup whole wheat pasta (any pasta is fine)
1 can red kidney beans, drained

In 4-5 quart slower cooker, combine all ingredients except pasta. Cover and cook on lowest setting for 8-10 hours. Stir in pasta and cook on high heat for 15-20 minutes or until pasta is tender. Bon Appetit!
