Slow Cooker Vegetable Minestrone Soup

I told you I can’t stop making soups and chilis. Today was no different. Before we left for church, I threw together this recipe so it would be ready for us when we got home.

When we walked into the house after church, the whole place smelled so delicious! We ate it for lunch and dinner and will be doing the same tomorrow. It was so good!

Thanks, Betty Crocker, for the recipe!
