Sharron's Easy Minestrone Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Jennifer Rosholt

I was over at my Mom's house one afternoon and was sitting at her kitchen island chatting with her. She asked if I wanted something to eat and I said, "Yes, soup." So she literally made this up right then and there. It was really good and I've been making it myself ever since.

What an easy & satisfying soup! DH wasn't going to be home til late tonight but we didn't know exactly when. I told him to call when he was leaving for home. I needed something quick & not too filling since it was going to be somewhere in the 7-8pm range. I served it with recipe #296967 & we couldn't have been happier. DS said it had just the right amount of seasonings to have a little spice, but nothing overwhelming. And even our toddler ate the veggies out of it! Now that's a good recipe! lol Thanks for sharing your mom's wonderful soup, Jennifer! We'll be making this again & again! Made, enjoyed & reviewed for Pick-A-Chef Spring 2008.
