Minestrone Soup- Zero Points...no Pasta....no Beans

Recipe by Oregon Cook

Sure, this isn't your typical minestrone soup recipe. However, it does taste the same and it's healthier.

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!!!
