Vegetable Noodle Soup

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Top Review by Bobbin

I thought this was just okay. It wasn't anything I would crave again. It probably was something I did in preparation and not the recipe because I did sub a few things with what I had. First, I put everything except the noodles and beans in the crock pot on low all day. About 2 hours before we ate, I added 2 c of whole wheat macaroni and 2 cans of kidney beans. I think the main thing I did was use the leaves of the celery as I have heard that is where the flavor is. So, my soup tasted a lot like celery, and I don't particularly care for celery. Thus, I think it was my fault. I did use a 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes for the tomatoes. Overall it wasn't bad; I would just need to figure out how to tweak it a little. I love the idea of this soup.
