    Enjolinfam's Note:

    This is our family's favorite minestrone soup recipe. We've tried others and keep coming back to this one, because it's usually healthier (no oil) and has more ingredients I have on hand. It's such a healthy filling meal. We are not sure where the recipe came from, but it's been on a piece of paper that is falling apart and I knew if I didn't put it in here I might lose it forever one day.

      Made this yesterday and what a delicious soul warming soup. Yes it takes a little time to chop the vegetables but I really don't mind...alot of times I find it relaxing. I did cut the recipe in half and used the full can of kidney beans but other than that and using just the diced tomatoes with basil I followed the directions. Definately a keeper. Thank you! Made for January Warm-ups.

      I thought this went together pretty easily, however it is time consuming, mainly from the point of view of cutting up vegetables. It also makes a very large recipe. That said it is very good, everyone who had it enjoyed it. The one item I might leave out the next time I make it is the corn, I am not sure the recipe needed it.

      Yummy soup. I didn't mind chopping everything since I was in the mood to spend the day in the kitchen. I added some squash since I had some on hand and some small shell pasta which 'scooped' up the flavors and veggies well. I thought that it was a little bland so added some red pepper flakes to the leftovers the next day. Turned out really yummy. Thanks Enjolinfam for sharing.
