Preparation

Step 1

To a 4-6 quart slow cooker add the carrots, onion, celery, canned tomatoes, oregano, basil and vegetable broth.
Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, until the vegetables are cooked and soft.
Using a hand-held blender right in the slow cooker blend until the soup is to your desired smoothness (I left it a little chunky, but you can blend until completely smooth if you desire).
Add the grated Parmesan cheese and half & half to the soup in the crock-pot and turn the heat up to high.
Cover and cook for 30 to 40 additional minutes until the soup is hot.
Add salt & pepper to taste and serve.
