A delicious and satisfying soup to have for lunch, dinner or inbetween. I had mine with a small sandwich for lunch and the next day, I measured some beans and small pasta noodles to add to have as a meal for dinner. A sprinkle of parmesean cheese on top makes this soup amazing!!!

This recipe will be going in my freezer soup rotation. It is so easy and was delicious served with shredded parmesan on top. I used an emmersion blender to puree up the tomato and garlic mixture in step 1. Thanks for sharing. *Made for PAC Spring 2010*

Can't wait to make this minestrone soup, without beans, I HATE BEANS, even though they are good for you. They don't agree with me. I know I will be freezing small portions to enjoy at work for lunch. Thanks for the recipe. Hugs and Smiles, Ginger-root
