    Annacia's Note:

    A twist on good ole minestrone. Very tasty and good for you too. This asks for the beans to be drained and rinsed. I never drain the juice from beans going into a soup. It's far too much food value to wash down the drain.

      Because of the ingredients I had or didn't have on hand, I had to make a few changes, but it turned out delicious! I used V-8 instead of the tomato juice and left out the green beans and zucchini. I had some turkey Italian sausage (no prosciutto), so I browned the sausages and sliced them before adding. I also used vermicelli instead of shell pasta. Although it sounds like a lot of changes, I think the true character of the dish was still there. We really enjoyed it on a blustery winter evening. Made for photo tag.
