  1. Combine vegetable broth, tomatoes, kidney beans, onion, celery, carrots, green beans, zucchini, garlic, parsley, oregano, salt, thyme, and black pepper in a 6-quart slow cooker.
  2. Cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours.
  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes; drain.

  • One 10-ounce package of spinach (thawed and squeezed dry) can be substituted for the fresh leaves. Substitute a can of cannellini beans (white kidney beans) if you'd like.
  • Easy Cleanup

I want to make this for a Lenten soup supper this week so I decided,to try it this evening. I didn't have time for the slow cooker so I just made it in a large pot, I read the comments before ...

Used this recipes on stovetop with a very low burner. It came out very tastey.

I've made this recipe twice already and it's quickly becoming a favorite to my girls that don't eat meat. I haven't found a need to change anything as it's great just the way it is. Thanks for s...

I'm not a vegetarian, but I liked this soup. This is one slow cooker recipe that I will make again (and there aren't many). Tasty and nutritious.

Frankly, I am shocked that something this easy to make can be so darn delicious. I'm so glad I made a huge batch, so I could freeze the rest and have some later. Even better the next day.

I tried it - although not a complete vegetarian and it was delicious ! My hubby also really enjoyed it... thanks for the recipe !

This was really good. I also cooked it in a stock pot and used mini shells instead of elbows. It was almost bland so I added smoked chipotle Tabasco and it was super yummy. I also make my veg st...
