A. M. A. Z. I. N. G. Seriously good soup! I made a double batch and we invited my MIL and grandparents to come to dinner. We ate it with some grilled cheese sandwiches. It was a delicious dinner! I did omit the chickpeas and cabbage, but added green beans and spinach. Everyone loved it, and we ate every last drop.

Next time I will remember to cut my carrots smaller because I had to cook it an extra long time in order to get the carrots tender enough.

love it but then we are soup addicts. Omitted chickpeas because of personal tastes and used leeks rather than onions. Thanks for a great submission. Will keep the chills away on a stormy day.

Delicious with beefstock broth...not so flavorful with chicken broth though.. My family devoured it with the homemade beefstock I found on this site....super hearty and filling.

August 15/07 really good soup. had minestrone soup in the hospital , it wasn't wonderful but wasn't half bad either so it stayed on my mind. when I got home i needed something easy for lunches and so looked for a good minestrone. this was definately it. made it as is except i couldn't resist adding some fresh roasemary because i have a plant. the only ingredient i didn't have was the zucchini, so i doubled up on the chopped cabbage. turned out great and gave us almost a weeks lunches, didn't use the cheese, didn't have any in but it was delicious anyway! thanks for posting!! definately is on my soup roataion!!
