Minestrone Soup

I just love soups.  If you have been reading this blog for awhile now, then I am sure you have realized that.  This minestrone soup is my latest recipe.   I created a post recently including 6 Healthy and Filling Soups.  I will probably have to add this minestrone soup in as well.

Minestrone Soup

This minestrone soup is hearty and filling and it was perfect for the chilly day we had here in Texas yesterday.  Soups are great because they always make a ton for very little cost.  They also freeze very well.

  2. please stop using canned goods. why not use fresh in your recipes. get lots of tomatos, for instance when in season, chop and freeze -
