    I use vegetable broth instead of water and I also added more beans. Also added additional pepper and used one can of diced tomatoes with chili peppers just to give it an added kick!

    I LOVED this recipe. I used a gluten free spiral pasta and it turned out perfectly. I will definitely be making this again once I have finished the leftovers.

    In another minestrone recipe they use a borlotti bean. Is there another name for it ? Also your recipe is the best I've found so far. It's the oregano definitely. I add more pepper as well. Plus I'll only add the pasta needed and then freeze the soup. I can boil some pasta as needed in vegetable broth for more flavor. Thanks in advance for your expertise. ?????????? !!! I

    I used organic lentils instead of cannellini beans and used fresh tomatoes instead of canned. All the ingredients were fresh and organic and it turned out great! Your recipe was the inspiration for my own version. Thank you for making it easy to follow.

    Awesome, easy recipe. It's super flavorful. I used macaroni instead because that's what I had. I added a splash of spicy pickle juice because it seemed like a good idea and it turned out nicely. Upped the beans because I love beans. Recommended for cold and rainy days! Thanks Uncle Bill!
