    senseicheryl's Note:

    My hubby and I went to Carrabba's tonight for dinner and I had a wonderful bowl of their Minestrone Soup. I begged them for the recipe but they said it's secret and are not allowed to give it out. So, as soon as I got home, I googled it and found this recipe at a copycat recipe website. I only hope that it comes close! I have no idea of the serving size that this recipe makes though.

      I used this copy cat recipe as well and found my broth to be a little lacking. I added some beef broth to it (1/2 chicken 1/2 beef) and i tell you what, not to toot my own horn or anything but it was hand down the best soup I have ever made. Adding the beef broth made it a lot more hearty!! Hope you guys try it out!! :)

      This recipe is spot on! Worked at Carrabba's during college for over 3 years and I never EVER got tired of eating this I am 14 years later craving it and had to try this out. The only changes I made was substituted Parmesan rind for Romono Rind (my grocery store didn't have Romano with rind on), and I also added 2 beef boullion cubes to hearty it up a bit after reading the below reviewer's additionn of beef stock...Served it at a family dinner party of 8 and there was not a drop of soup left in ANY bowl! Definitely going to make this again and again!!!

      Perfect. Exactly the best minestrone. This makes a ton of soup too and freezes well. While you might be able to alter the beans and have close to the same thing, the cheese rind really adds that wonderful flavor. I didn't have any basil so I used italian seasoning and I also used the half beef and half chicken stock suggestion. I also used bacon at the beginning instead of the meat.
