Recipe Background

This recipe for Minestrone Soup is super easy and super fast. Pair it with a side salad and some bakery bread and you will have a healthy and filling meal. I like to cook and add the pasta separately so it doesn't get too soft. Sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese on top for extra flavor if you desire.
