    Brit413's Note:

    I think this soup is better than Olive Garden's!! Not only is it really good, but it's simple and goof-proof. PS...I always add extra vegetables.

      I made this for the 3 Chefs game. This soup is just like it says "Really Good Minestrone Soup". It's simple to make as well!. It did not yield the same quantity as the recipe says - I wound up with 16 Cups-but that's plenty of soup:) Very flavorful. I did stick to the recipe but added a little more zucchini and I added 1 fennel bulb. I served this with Bread Machine Caesar Bread and it truly was a match made in heaven!
