          Notes

          *adapted from one of our favorite slow cooker recipe websites - Recipes that Crock
          *While it is tempting to want to add in more rice (we often do the boil in the bag rice, and it makes more than 1 C) - this will absorb all your broth - and you will no longer have soup. 
          *You could use Italian seasoning in place of basil and oregano if you don't have one of them.
