This is the minestrone I prefer. It's quick to prepare, reheats well and is healthy and low in fat.

This is so simple and just so good! My husband just isn't a fan of soup...especially a soup without meat, and he raved over this. I added some of my dad's canned home-grown tomatoes. It is perfect. Thanks!
