I love a flavorful minestrone on a cold night. The herbs compliment each other wonderfully. Serve with garlic breadsticks and an Italian salad.

Thankyou for posting! I recently made minestrone which was so good, but I didn't bookmark the recipe. This is almost exactly what I did and it was sooo good! Thanks! I like your ratio of tomato juice to broth, I will make it this way this time, I'm sure it will be great!
