Crock Pot Lasagna Soup

This was a HIT with the whole family!  They loved it, and I therefore loved it.  When they don't complain, and actually like something new, it's a keeper!  It was indeed, easy to make and delicious to eat.

ingredients:
1 lb. ground beef or sausage
3 cups beef broth (or vegetable broth)
1 cup water
2 cups V8
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. dried parsley
1 Tbsp. dried basil
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1, 28 oz. can diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 cups uncooked shell pasta
shredded mozzarella (for serving)

directions:
1.  Brown the meat, drain the fat.  
2.  Combine all ingredients in the crock pot, except for the pasta and mozzarella.
3.  Cook on Low for 4-8 hours.  1/2 hour before serving, stir in the shell pasta.  Put lid back on and continue to cook for 15-30 minutes.  
4.  Serve and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
