Recipe by POSHBEKI
"The absolute best minestrone I have tasted. A spicy twist on a traditional soup. I make this in large quantities and freeze in 1 cup portions for a fast meal. I sometimes slice and brown a spicy chicken sausage and add it to this soup for my husband who loves meaty soup. Penne pasta or orrichette pasta may be cooked on the side and added at the end!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Bek's Minestrone Haiku: "Shazam, this was good! (Added chicken sausage too, per the submitter.)" I followed the recipe as written, but I put everything (except the zucchini) in the crockpot on low all afternoon, and added the zucchini in the last hour so it wouldn't turn to smoosh. Only wish I'd taken Bek's other suggestion and added some pasta at the end, but with the potatoes, we were carb-content w/ this fab soup.
I made it 2X in the last few weeks and it is fantastic. The first time i made is exactly and added some sausage pieces at the end. The second time i changed out the potatoes for little pasta twirls and put some extra pepper spice. (I love spicey) I was delicious both times. I will be making this a lot over the winter season!!! Thanks POSHBEKI :)
