Minestrone Soup

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Scrivener1

This is by far the best soup that I have ever had. I found this recipe in a cookbook called A Collection of the Very Finest Recipes. I have slightly adapted the recipe, but not by much.

VERY GOOD... I added additional broth for a brothier soup.. It was a little too thick with just 2 cans of broth. This is real tasty!
