      This was so easy and delicious as well! I threw it all (except the cheese) in the crockpot and used a can of Italian stewed tomatoes instead of crushed and it turned out great! My new go-to minestrone recipe...will definately make it again with different veggies...I think it could take just about anything. Thanks!

      Loved this recipe! So simple and quick! I used boullioun as we didn't have stock and it turned out great (although a little salty). I added kidney beans as well as some celery. YUM! Served w/ crusty bread = just perfect! Thanks for sharing!

      SO easy and SO delicious: WOW! And like all soup recipes, very adaptable: if you don't have something on hand you can easily substitute something else. I made this pretty much to the recipe, except for using baby carrots and increasing the basil and garlic a tad. If I hadn't been planning on taking this to work for lunches during the coming week, I would have added some wine, perhaps inappropriately! I used my Vegetable Stock Vegetable Stock instead of water. Still amazed by how quick this was to make. Thanks, KelBel. I'll be making this often.
