Do you love soup this time of year? I sure do! I also love to try new soups. This was one of my first times to try a slow cooker, meatless, minestrone soup. I typically always add some type of meat to my soups; however, I have been trying my hardest to make more meatless meals. I learned a valuable lesson making this soup. I quickly realized that adding my entire box of noodles was not a good idea because once they expanded, they took over my soup. So, I did a remake and this time it came out just the way I was hoping for.
I made this soup more bland than most, to serve it with some Asaigo cheese, croutons, and parsley on top. I wanted something very simple and perfect for a cold day.
