This is the most delicious crockpot soup I've made in years! First, its easy to assemble and once it starts cooking the kitchen smells wonderful! Only change I made was using 2 cans of chopped Italian stewed tomatoes, with the juice, adding small, sliced portobello mushrooms and fresh baby spinach. I did not put in orzo but had rotini for those that wanted pasta. Everyone was going back for seconds and thirds! The parmesan on top makes it truly Italian! I will be making this in the next week to put up in containers for cold weather, will add white kidney beans instead of pasta. I bet it would be great over small tortellini also! Its definitely a recipe worth trying!
I added mushrooms in place of the carrots, used twice the amount of orzo and replaced one of the cans of chicken stock with a 12 oz beer. The beer made it great! Delicious and easy!
I am so full because I could not stop eating this! I omitted half the liquid (stock mainly) and added 1.5 times as much orzo, and it came out like an Italian Jambalaya! My family loved this. I needed to do something with frozen sausage and this was the perfect recipe. Thanks!
