As I have said before, soup should be a food group…especially during the winter!

This hardy minestrone is super-healthy. You can opt to make it with or without the pasta. Also, you can experiment with using other beans other than the ones listed in this recipe.

I would recommend doubling the recipe and freezing the extra in some large-sized Ball jars. These are on sale usually every-other-week at Hobby Lobby!

ENJOY!
