Vegetable Minestrone

Recipe by ladybug810

This is my sister's recipe, but I have to share it because it's so good! A great vegetarian recipe that's healthy too. The recipe would be vegan if you use eggless pasta and omit the Parmesan cheese.

I was VERY Pleased with this recipe. It has great presentation and taste. I added celery and fresh spinach rather than frozen spinach.
