This was so easy and delicious as well! I threw it all (except the cheese) in the crockpot and used a can of Italian stewed tomatoes instead of crushed and it turned out great! My new go-to minestrone recipe...will definately make it again with different veggies...I think it could take just about anything. Thanks!
Loved this recipe! So simple and quick! I used boullioun as we didn't have stock and it turned out great (although a little salty). I added kidney beans as well as some celery. YUM! Served w/ crusty bread = just perfect! Thanks for sharing!
SO easy and SO delicious: WOW! And like all soup recipes, very adaptable: if you don't have something on hand you can easily substitute something else. I made this pretty much to the recipe, except for using baby carrots and increasing the basil and garlic a tad. If I hadn't been planning on taking this to work for lunches during the coming week, I would have added some wine, perhaps inappropriately! I used my Vegetable Stock Vegetable Stock instead of water. Still amazed by how quick this was to make. Thanks, KelBel. I'll be making this often.
easy and good. what more could we ask for.
I put green beans instead of peas and forgot the parmesan. It was a tasty simple meal with fresh buttered bread. Thank you for posting!
First minestrone I have tried that had peas in it. Next time I will use less peas and macaroni so there will be more broth. This soup was quick and easy with a tasty broth. I could eat just the broth it had such a nice flavor. Thanks KelBel. Bullwinkle
This was so easy to put together and great for a take to work lunch. I used homemade beef stock and the flavor was really incredible. Freezes and reheats well, too. Thanks for posting, KelBel.
This was fast, easy and delicious! What more can i say?
A wonderful, comforting soup. Even with some substitutions, this turned out delicious! I couldn't find crushed tomatoes, so used canned diced tomatoes instead. I have a can of red kidney beans sitting around, so I used that. Used frozen corn instead of peas (I don't like peas) and omitted the parmesan, due to personal taste. Thanks KelBel; I'm glad I tagged this recipe!
Modern Minestrone may be easily put together but comes to the table tasting like an old fashioned country soup! I used beef broth in the making but I'm sure it would be equally good using vegetable broth. We enjoyed this soup and thank you for sharing the recipe.
