    CountryLady's Note:

    This is absolutely delicious on a cold winter day & one of my favourite soups! (Sometimes I add some baby spinach leaves during the last 5 minutes).I'm enjoying a mug-full as I type this.

      I love Minestrone soup alot ever since I had it for the first time at the Olive Garden restaurant in Orlando. I have been desperately wanting to have the recipe. Thank you so much for posting this! I made this for dinner tonight using Maggi vegetable broth with onions as a substitute for the chicken and beef broth. Also, I used Pure Wesson Canola oil as a substitute for the olive oil and I used ghee as a substitute for butter. I had to omit the zucchini and leek since I did not have those on hand and I'm not a big fan of them either. This soup was very nice and made me warm. Thank you for sharing the incredibly good recipe on Zaar!

      This was a wonderful recipe. I added some italian seasoning and it was perfect. I served it with fresh italian bread.

      This was good, but a little too much fat. I boiled the ribs from Christmas prime rib for the stock so there was some fat in there too. I used 6 cups of that not half beef, half chicken. Also used 3 green onions instead of leeks and chopped up the little bit of meat off the bones and added that. No zucchini. I broke the spaghettis into about 1" pieces but it was too weird. I think a more substantial pasta would be better, bow ties, maybe.
