Crockpot Italian Tomato Soup with Pasta

This is such an easy soup to make, because you simply need to dump all the ingredients into a crockpot and let everything cook slowly for 8 hours or until everything is tender and the flavors are well combined. You can then add some pasta shapes and keep cooking the soup until those are tender too. Serve it with some freshly grated parmesan flakes if liked, for a wonderful lunch or supper.

We are using tomato juice as well as diced tomatoes in juice for a rich tomato flavor, as well as your choice of vegetable or chicken broth for a hearty flavor. Onion, mushrooms, carrots and celery offer plenty of nutrients, while basil, garlic and oregano enhance the flavor with their Italian flavors. This hearty soup is colorful and suitable for everyone in the family. If the kids enjoy potato soup, chicken soup and other appealing varieties, why not try this, because it is really tasty and goes beautifully with a grilled cheese sandwich.

You can use any kind of pasta shapes in here – whole wheat or white, and any shape. The pasta will take about 20 minutes to cook if you turn the heat up to high, but if you are pushed for time, you can add cooked pasta (or rice if you prefer) and warm it up for 5 minutes. If you are going to serve a sandwich on the side, then you might prefer to omit the pasta from the soup. Why not set this going in the morning before you go to work, and then you can come home to a perfectly cooked evening meal which is tasty and hearty? The kitchen will smell amazing as well. Feel free to adjust the vegetables, throwing in zucchini, broccoli or anything else you want.
