      Yum yum! A very warming and tasty minestrone with lots of zucchini (a plus!) It is also very tomato-ey, so if you love tomatoes you will enjoy this very much. My only suggestion is to cook the celery a little longer (with the onions maybe?) so they become more tender. I had to cook my soup awhile more until they softened. Also added some fresh spinach and basil from the garden. Thanks, Uncle Bill. [Made for All You Can Cook Tag]

      Uncle Bill, this is fantastic. I followed your recipe exactly but I used vegetable stock instead of water because I had some I needed to use up. My husband takes soup for lunch in the winter and he raved about this when he came home. Thanks for another great recipe.

      Thank you Uncle Bill for this recipe. So simple and delicious! I was looking for a vegetarian version for minestrone soup. I used chicken stock instead of vegetable, because well I'm not a vegetarian and wanted the flavor of chicken stock. My husband and two small children ate this up with crusty french bread for dipping.
