    Tish's Note:

    Posted in response to a request. This is a wonderfully hearty soup that is pretty close to Olive Garden's. We used to go there several times a month when I lived close and get the soup and bread sticks. Mmmmmm

      If you think this recipe isn't close to OG's then look up "Copycat Olive Garden Minestrone Soup by Todd Wilbur" on this website. I think it is much closer to the original but Chef #1111125 would be a better judge . . .

      I made some changes to this recipe such as adding 2 Italian recipe cans diced tomatoes. I was surprised to see that there was no tomatoes and it made this recipe amazing! I also used vegetable broth instead of plain water. I omitted the rice and used canned beans (Chickpeas, light and dark kidney beans, and canned green beans.) I also added 1/2 tsp. thyme and was hesitant to use the soy sauce, but I added it and this has to have been the best minestrone I have ever tasted!
