    spiritussancto's Note:

    none of the others really seem like they have the things i like, or have too many of things i don't like. to me minestrone should be loaded up with veggies and herbs and pasta, not thin or watery or mostly beans. presumably you could add whatever veggies you like to this but this is how i make it.
