      I cut the recipe in half and followed the instructions except for using homemade broth (leaving out the bouillon) and zucchini for broccoli. Made for a tasty lunch...served with bread down at the beach. Thank you! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.

      Bone Man, your minestrone recipe is the best! I ask for forgiveness for not reviewing your recipe sooner as I have made this several times. I also shared with my DD and her family loves it as well. She made a pot for her neighbor, as the neighbor had just come home with a new baby and the neighbor's family also loves it, and who knows how far this recipe has spread as the neighbor is a military family. I usually sub zucchini for the broccoli and all else as you wrote. Excellent recipe. You have made many families' tummies very happy.

      This was perfect for the cold snap we've had here in Texas! I omited the broccoli and subbed sliced zuchinni and used two 14.5 oz. cans of petite diced tomatoes, but otherwise followed your recipe. DH has been enjoying the leftovers for lunch and there's a batch in the freezer.Thanks for posting this, Pat- it's great!

      This recipe makes a wonderful soup! I used two pounds of Italian sausage because my husband likes lots of meat in his soup. I think the balance was just right because this makes a lot of soup (be sure to use a large soup pot when making). The flavor was excellent! Using 8 carrots really does provide a sweetness to this soup that you may not expect. Other than adding more sausage, I followed the directions exactly and I wouldn't change a thing. This is a great soup and I will definitely make it again. Thanks, Boneman!

      I had been on the lookout for a minestrone soup and this one fit the bill. I used hamburger (doctored up per Kittencal's above mentioned sausage substitute) since my kids don't care for sausage too much (I think it's the fennel). I used one cup of the V-8 to make it less tomatoe-y. This is good enough for company, since we served it that way, with two breads: garlic and oatmeal. Thanks Bone Man for another flavorful recipe.

      This is one of the best minestrone soups I have made and I have made many in the past. I did make some amount adjustments and used my Seasoning for Gound Pork (Italian-Style Sausage) in place of Italian sausages, I increased the garlic to 3 tablepoons, and used all the other ingredients as listed, since I make my own beef broth I omitted the chicken bouillon cubes, my homemade stock is very rich as is! I look forward to making this many more times, it so good! thanks for sharing this great recipe Bones!...Kitz:)
