“This soup was created on a lovely Saturday morning in June. Birds were chirping, the sky was bright and blue, and I was craving vegetables like a mad woman! The veggies in this soup are complimented by an assortment of herbs and spices and homemade vegetable broth. There are lots of onions in this soup...mmmm... Use a food processor to speed up preparation time. Cook time includes maximum time in slowcooker. Use a large 6 quart slowcooker to ensure all the veggies and pasta will fit!”

  4. Variations:
  5. This soup is extremely versitle.
  6. You can substitute almost any vegetable in this recipe for another and still get great results.

  8. Substitute rice or wild rice for pasta.

  10. The first time I made this, I used wacky-mac pasta, which is an assortment of different colored and shaped small pasta. It adds a nice color and variety to the soup.
  11. Some of the water cooks out and is absorbed by the pasta. Add more halfway through cooking, if desired.
  12. As is, this recipe makes about 6 two-cup servings.
