Wonderful ministrone! I added garbanzo beans, more broth (even some chicken broth). Married to a "Super" Italian and he loved it. As usual, we added grated parmesan on top when serving. Very good!

This is a keeper!! My quiet son said "Good soup Mom" - and that's a mouthful for him. Since you already had such great reviews from very reliable sources, I took the liberty of making this in the slow cooker on low for 8 hours. It turned out great!! I did add one extra cup of water, used low sodium products and did not add salt. I cooked the pasta on the stove and stirred it in. The flavor, combination of vegetables and many textures of this soup make it wonderful!! Thanks Bella Donna!!
