If you’re a fan of this famous Olive Garden soup, take note of this yummy and flavorful meatless version. It’s a great way to feed a crowd on a budget and something you can compile and keep warm in a slow cooker. The combo of sautéed veggies, broth, pasta, beans, and diced tomatoes make for a filling and easy to throw together meal.

This recipe makes over 6 quarts so be sure to use a large pot. I transferred some to my slow cooker to keep warm until dinner time and then froze the rest for later. You can also split the recipe in half for a smaller batch.

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!
