Meatless Monday doesn't get much better than this Vegetarian Pasta e Fagioli Soup made in the slow cooker!  (Photo from Kalyn's Kitchen.)

I've made a lot of meatless soups through the years, but this Slow Cooker Vegetarian Pasta e Fagioli Soup with Whole Wheat Orzo is absolutely one of the best meatless soups I've made for Kalyn's Kitchen.  I loved everything about this soup, but the added richness from cooking it with a few pieces of Parmesan rind really kicks up the flavor, so don't skip that step if you have Parmesan rinds hanging out in the fridge or freezer.   And don't just serve this for Meatless Monday; it's a delicious soup for any day of the week!

Ingredients for this Crock Pot Recipe:
Olive oil, onion, celery, carrots, garlic, Italian Herb Blend, Spike Seasoning, ground fennel, red pepper flakes, canned red beans,  canned or homemade vegetable stock, tomato sauce, salt and fresh-ground black pepper, 100% whole wheat orzo (or other small pasta, use brown rice for gluten-free version), good quality balsamic vinegar.  Optional:  Parmesan rind to add while the soup is cooking.  Toppings:  freshly-grated Parmesan cheese, chopped fresh parsley.
