In the Kitchen:

Minestrone Soup A la Margo--Prep Time: 15 min
Total Time: 6 hr 30 min
Makes: 8 servings, about 1 cup each

1/4 cup Zesty Italian Dressing (I always add a little more than that)
1 cup chopped onions (about 1 medium)
1/2 cup chopped celery (about 1 stalk)
1/2 cup chopped carrots (about 1 medium)
1 can (14-1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (19 oz.) red kidney beans, drained, rinsed
2 cans (14 oz. each) vegetable broth
2 cups water
1 tsp. Italian seasoning (if you don’t have this – just throw in some seasoning salt)
1-1/2 cups small shell macaroni, uncooked 1/2 cup
Grated Parmesan Cheese

I add a can of tomato paste with the broth and a chopped zucchini when I add the pasta.

HEAT dressing in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add Veggies; cook 2 min. or until crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Spoon into slow cooker. Add tomatoes, beans, broth, water and Italian seasoning; stir. Cover with lid.

COOK on LOW for 6 hours (or on HIGH for 3 hours).
STIR in macaroni; cook 10 to 15 min. or until macaroni is tender. Sprinkle with cheese just before serving.
