This is an excellent recipe for minestrone soup. Simple and tasty! My family loved the soup and it was fast to put together. All I had to do was wait for it to cook itself. LOVE IT!!

Mmmm...yum! Okay, so I didn't have any carrots left, same for the zucchini but WOW was it good. I threw in a little basil and I used cannelini beans. We topped it off with a little cheese and a drizzle of olive oil. Excellent. Homemade bread rounded out the meal Thanks for sharing. Even our 3 year old said, "Yummy."
