I made this pasta in June since it's a favorite of mine. I left out the beans (my husband hates beans). I cooked it on high for six hours and used 24 oz. spaghetti sauce instead of 10 oz. This was the right choice since, even with the added sauce, the soup wasn't very brothy at all. Overall, delicious. Will do again.

Before serving, cut french bread or baguette into slices. Fill soup bowls to the top, then cover with slice of bread and a slice of cheese. Set under the broiler for 2-3 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and golden brown. Be careful when serving as bowls will be hot!

tomato basil parmesan soup for the crock pot. Made this today. Subtle tomato flavor. Lightened it by using 1c skim milk and 1c half and half. Didnt stir in Parm but just grated some on top before serving. Great with simple grilled cheese sandwiches. Kids liked the soup. Though not likr Norstrom Cafe's tomato soup (which has something like 2 cups of heavy cream), I will make again.
