I made Wegmans recipe for slow-cooked beef minestrone over the weekend, and it was delicious! (Photo from Wegmans.com) The recipe was pretty easy, with all of the prep work done in the first 20-30 minutes. Then it cooked in my slow-cooker for about 6 hours. I added the remaining ingredients during the last 1/2 hour and it was perfectly ready by dinner time. I highly recommend it for a great family meal. I am still enjoying leftovers!
