If you have 20 minutes then this can be in your crock-pot and cooking, the results will be rewarding and your family and friends will love you for it .....but one good thing you will not break a sweat.


2 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) chicken broth

1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce

1 medium yellow onion, rough chopped

1/2 medium green bell pepper, rough chopped

1/2 cup orange juice

1/2 cup dry white wine (optional) but in my opinion it makes the flavor pop

1 jar (2 1/2 ounces) sliced button mushrooms

1/4 cup sliced pitted black olives

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon dried basil

2 bay leaves

1/4 teaspoon whole fennel seeds, crushed

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 pound medium raw shrimp, peeled and divined

salt to taste

Place all ingredients except shrimp in a crock-pot slow cooker. Cover, cook on low 4 to 41/2 hours or until vegetable are crisp-tender.

Stir in shrimp. Cover, cook 15 to 30 minutes or until shrimp are pink and opaque. Remove and discard bay leaves., if salt is needed you can add it at this time then stir and let sit for another minute or 2....then serve and enjoy.

This great tasting soup can serve 6 to 8 people, but it also great for left-overs and easy to freeze and reheat.
