The chunky, flavorful vegetables will fill you up with energizing nutrients.

It’s a comforting fan favorite, but minestrone stew can sometimes taste like a bowl of mushy vegetables and pasta. Not the case with our Slow Cooker Root Vegetable Minestrone Stew! We’ve added classic fall root vegetables to the recipe, so you can use this soup to celebrate the season. The chunky, flavorful vegetables will fill you up with energizing nutrients. Since it’s a SkinnyMs. recipe, this is a dish you can indulge in guilt-free.

You can also just toss almost all the ingredients into your slow cooker in the morning and let it do all the work. By adding in the pasta much later on you can avoid the soggy, tasteless macaroni in your scrumptious stew.
