    Chef1MOM-Connie's Note:

    WOW! Saw this recipe and had to adopt and post. I grow tons of basil and freeze my pesto (Thanks to Zaar directions) I tried this and really enjoyed it as did the family. This is a great recipe for summer harvest or anytime of year. I added in some veggies as DH and I love to eat fresh vegetables and he likes substantial soups.(these additions are in parenthesis) I hope you enjoy. Adopted from Mr. Food- a hometown celebrity chef

      Delicious! I sauteed 4 cloves of garlic with the onions in about 1 T of basil infused olive oil instead of using garlic broth. Once they begin to soften, I added the other soup ingredients.(plus carrot and summer squash -- no potatoes) and cooked on high for 3 hours, then low for 1, then added pesto and spinach as directed. Easy, but very tasty!

      The other reviewers who said the pesto makes this recipe are right. I decided to just stir the pesto into each individual serving. It is delicious and I feel so healthy after eating it! And a crock pot recipe to boot! Loved this on a chilly, busy Fall evening! Thank you!

      This is all about the pesto. This is a great soup and I love the fact that it is a crock pot recipe. But the flavor is brought out with the pesto. Made for ZWT 2011.
