I LOVE this soup. I’ve posted a link on our adoption blog to it before, but not with my alterations and not with pics. The original recipe came from allrecipes.com. Here’s an update with the changes I made.
Meatball Minestrone a la Christy
1/2 small onion, diced
6 cups water
1 (16 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
3 stalks of celery, sliced
3-4 carrots, sliced
1 medium zucchini, chopped
3 teaspoons beef Better Than Bouillon
1 bay leaf
6 leaves of fresh basil, roughly chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
6 ounces spiral or shell pasta
24 cooked frozen turkey meatballs
1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
Combine ingredients in a crock pot, minus pasta. Cook on low for 8-10 hours. 10 minutes before serving add pasta. Cook until pasta is tender. Discard bay leaf before serving.
