Slow Cooker Minestrone

This is a perfect cold weather meal. Plan to make it this week and let me know how your family likes it. It would be fun to hear from you!

Slow Cooker Minestrone


1 pound stew meat, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

2 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes, undrained

2 cans (14 ounces each) beef broth

1 can (15 ounces) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained

1 can (15 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained

2 medium carrots, sliced (about 1 cup)

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon each: oregano, basil

1/4 teaspoon each: salt, pepper

1 beef bouillon cube

1 medium zucchini or yellow squash, cut lengthwise and sliced

In a 5-6 quart slow cooker, combine all the ingredients except the squash. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-6 hours. Add squash to the cooker 30 minutes before serving. Serve over cooked pasta (bow tie, rotini or elbow noodles) and top with grated Parmesan, if desired. Enjoy!
