Recipe: Minestrone Soup

Minestrone is glorified vegetable soup. It’s usually made with whatever is in season and often contains pasta or rice and always has beans in it. I’m not a really big of this soup in restaurants as it’s usually served very thin with a ton of pasta and not much in the way of vegetables and also usually has a beef base which I don’t like. I made mine with vegetable stock but feel free to make yours with chicken or beef if you have that instead. This recipe makes about 8 servings but could be easily scaled down.
