Morning everyone!  Here’s a soup recipe for our food Friday.  I haven’t tried it yet but plan to pretty soon.  I got this recipe from the nutritionist at the gym that I go to.

3 cups water
2-10.5oz can low sodium chicken broth
1 bag shredded carrots
1 zuchinni, diced
1 cup chopped spinach
1-15oz can white beans
3-14.5oz can low sodium diced tomatoes
2 cloves minced garlic
2 tsp mrs. dash tomatoe/basil seasoning or 1tsp basil and 1tsp oregano
1/2 tsp pepper
1 cup wheat elbow macaroni (optional)

Combine all ingredients, except the macaroni, and cook in crock pot on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 5-6 hours.  Add the macaroni the last 30 minutes and turn crock pot on high.

Serves 8.
