Made for My3Chefs 2009. This recipe is simple and I love the idea of making the soup in the crockpot. I use mine often so this was a nice touch for me as Fall is here. The soup falvor was good although I would have liked more garlic and something to zing it. My personal preferences. I also cook my noodles seperate so leftover soup can be eaten the next day or frozen. I will make this again as I like the idea of the whole roaster in the crock, usually I cut it up ahead. This is much easier. Thank you chef.
