This minestrone is so healthy and delicious. It's on the thicker side. You can add water if you like a more liquidy soup. My boyfriend and I dined on this about 3 more times in the week...On the 3rd night, he said to me, "When you suggested soup again, I was thinking 'eh, okay', but when I started eating it, I thought 'mmmm this is still really good.'"

This was very good and easy. I made as stated except left out the broccoli. Reheated well and actually tastes better the second day.
