Minestrone Soup recipe ~ hearty, healthy meatless Italian soup. Rich tomato broth loaded with vegetables and beans. Serve with a good bread for a complete meal.

This easy Minestrone Soup recipe is one I’ve been making for years. I almost always have a container or three in the freezer all year. The vegetables may change a bit depending on what’s in season, but the flavor is always spot on.

Rich tomato broth with two kinds of beans and loaded with vegetables. It’s the perfect balance of healthy and comfort food.

Pasta Alla Vodka ~ tender pasta in a rich, delicious tomato-cream vodka sauce. Top with freshly grated parmesan cheese for an easy, restaurant quality meal in under 30 minutes.
