Made this soup this week--delicious--I added some baby spinach, a half a head of green cabbage and used vegetable stock instead of water. EXCELLENT! Bill K.#1440799

I was searching for a quick vegetarian soup that would incorporate the food items I had on hand. I particularly liked reading the review that it wasn't what you might call minestrone...because I never cared for minestrone ( esp. in the cans..yuck). This recipe is a keeper! Quick, hearty & with a hunk of cornbread on the side & you've got a pretty good meal. I used regular can diced tomatoes (instead of organic) & small macaroni shells - instead of the ditalini - because their cute & I like them) . Thank you for sharing.

This soup is both healthy and delicious, though not quite my idea of authentic minestrone. I added 6 cups of water and a cube of vegetable bouillon, but omitted the salt. Next time I might substitute cannellini beans for the black beans and perhaps some green cabbage. Thanks for sharing a tasty recipe!
