Minestrone Soup

My sister gave me this recipe for Minestrone Soup.  I have to get all of her recipes, since my kids have decided that everything she makes is amazing.  Seriously, it sometimes gets ridiculous. 

Last year, Miss Magoo decided she no longer liked apple sauce.  Then we visited Aunt Julie, and had some of her applesauce (she makes it exactly like I do), and Miss Magoo decided that she loved Aunt Julie’s applesauce, so I needed to change my recipe!  I just laugh.  And anytime I make something different, I pretend the recipe came from Aunt Julie– and they eat it.

Minestrone Soup Recipe

So back to this Minestrone Soup.  It’s very flavorful, and quite easy.  It’s a hearty, filling soup that stretches a long way, so it’s great for a crowd.  In fact, if you need to make it for a large group, you can easily make the recipe stretch farther by adding extra water and more noodles.

I was so surprised when we ate this minestrone soup at my sister’s house, and the kids loved it. I was mostly surprised because they just don’t typically like soup, with a few exceptions.

I just love that this minestrone soup is so easy to pull together! It makes a fabulous weeknight dinner!

Back when I was in NJ, I would have minestrone soup several times over the winter season. It is so comforting, especially on a cold day. Your recipe is too good for words. Brings back so many wonderful memories

Thank you so much, Rini! A good hot soup on a cold day makes me think of curling up in a blanket with a good book. Both are such lovely images!

I made this tonight. I didn't have the exact beans on hand so that was changed up a touch and I used just water, not broth. BUT, it was really good. Thanks.

I'm so glad to hear you liked it, Jan! You may want to add a bit (a tsp or so) of bullion without the broth for more flavor. It makes me so happy when people give us feedback on recipes! :)
