Minestrone Soup Like Carrabba's

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by senseicheryl

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!! :)
