Minestrone Soup

Minestrone Soup is a delicious, flavorful homemade recipe perfect for cooler weather!

Minestrone Soup recipe is a favorite of mine for cooler weather.  I love the aroma of the soup cooking and how flavorful it is.  My husband also enjoys the soup very much, he likes when I add in beef stew meat or ground beef.  Which if you desire to add meat to the soup you can by cooking it beforehand then after sauteing the vegetables you can add it in.  Which I did when making the soup this time. But I personally think it tastes amazing either way.

I like to serve a loaf of hot French bread with the Minestrone Soup when I make it.  I just pick a fresh loaf from my local bakery and warm it in the oven.  Then I slice it and serve with the soup, I like to dip the bread pieces in my soup.  Be sure to try this soup recipe soon, you will not be disappointed!
