Minestrone soup is one of the worlds most well know soups and is a great way to get all your vegetables. Minestrone is essentially a vegetarian dish but we also made it with pasta in our house when I was younger so as to make a real meal out of it.
In this minestrone recipe I am going to stick with just vegetables although if you are happy to add pasta you may do so for the last 8 minutes of cooking the minestrone. With the addition of pasta this soup will keep you going throughout the day.
You may add in or substitute any of the vegetables here for any that you like.
Lets see what ingredients we need for this classic Italian soup.
