    KLV's Note:

    We love this soup and it is easy to make. It is a stovetop recipe that I got out of one of my church cookbooks and adapted to use in my crockpot.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Saute the pepperoni/sausage, garlic, onion, carrot, celery, and zucchini in a non-stick pan.
    2. 2
      Place the tomatoes, bouillon, water, spinach, kidney beans, basil, oregano, and wine into the crockpot and turn onto low.
    3. 3
      Stir.
    4. 4
      Add the sauted meat and vegetables to the crockpot and cook on low for 6- 8 hours.
    5. 5
      Approximately 1/2 hour before you're ready to eat, put the 3/4 cup of uncooked noodles into the crockpot and stir into the soup.
    6. 6
      Turn the crockpot to high for this last 1/2 hour.
    7. 7
      If desired, sprinkle some of the grated cheese on top of the soup once it has been ladled into individual bowls.
    8. 8
      (I grate the cheese into bowls and let everyone put as much or as little on they like).

      Made a few deletions (red wine and zucchini) but otherwise prepared as directed. Turned out deliciously!

      Tasty, simple and filling. A good recipe as it is, and easy to modify to suit your tastes. Thank you, KarenLV!

      Rereading this recipe, I realized that I meant to write rotini noodles instead of rigatoni - of course, any noodles will do really. Also, you can use mild or hot Italian sausage - whatever you prefer!
