Autumn Minestrone Soup

 

The good thing about Minestrones soup, is the veggies.  And this one is no exception.   Even if you’re not a big fan of veggies, this soup is not only flavorful but nutritious too, and before you even realize it…the bowl will be empty.

So here’s to some homemade comfort food for those chilling dreary winter days ahead. Enjoy!

 

To make the veggie prep easier use the pre-cut ones .

If you feel that both the pasta and potatoes are a little to much starch for your liking, just eliminate one, it won’t affect the taste very much at all.
