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!

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.
