    davianng's Note:

    This is my Mom's recipe. Very easy, very good. I had a successful mail-order business years ago packaging the spices, pasta, cheese and recipe. The veggie measurements are "guesstimates" as I don't usually measure! I also vary the veggies according to what I have on hand - the only thing I've ever used that didn't work was beets.This also freezes well.

      This soup is so good and filling. This is what I'm having for lunch, so I didn't try it with parmesan cheese. I omitted the potato. I added more cabbage. Thanks davianng :) Made for PRMR tag game

      I'm not much for eating cooked spinach, but my other half is, & so I made this & pretty much followed the recipe right on down, especially knowing that it freezes well! The one thing I made sure to do was to chop the spinach quite small & cut the amount back a little! I thought the minestrone was very tasty, & my other half thought it OUTSTANDING, so there you go! I'm not sure that I'd change a thing when I make it again! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Tagged & made for Please Review My Recipe]
