Slow Cooker (Crockpot) Sizes

The size of your crockpot can affect the outcome of your meal. If your crockpot is smaller than what we recommend, you may need to cook your meal a little longer. If it’s larger than what we recommend you may need to shorten the cooking time. You will need to keep a close eye on the chicken as it cooks. Here are the crockpot sizes we recommend for each meal size to help cook your meals just right:

Smaller Portion (SP) - 3-Quart Crockpot
Regular Portion (RP) - 4-Quart Crockpot
Bigger Portion (BP) - 6-Quart Crockpot

Pressure Cooker (InstantPot) Cooking Instructions

Though Beehive Meals are primarily designed to be cooked within a slow cooker (Crockpot), many of our meals can be cooked in a Pressure Cooker (InstantPot). Please reference our Pressure Cooker Instructions in the helpful links below.

Serving Suggestions

Though this soup comes with a prepackaged bag of ditalini noodles, feel free to use different noodles including homemade-style egg noodles, fettuccine, linguine, farfalle, or even add a twist with cheesy tortellini.

Minestrone Soup is perhaps the ultimate Italian comfort food. Even though it’s great on its own, you may want to add something extra on the side. Our recommendations include saltine crackers, homemade rolls, grilled cheese sandwich, or fresh garlic bread.
