      I am not a big fan of minestrone, but this looked like it might be good. It does have a nice fresh flavor, but it has not converted me to a fan. I used swiss chard instead of cabbage as suggested in Everyday Food--I think the cabbage would be a better option. Very filling and perfect for a cold day!
