This recipe was given to me by mother-in-law, it is the greatest cool season warm-up soup ever.
This was a great,easy soup. I am not a big soup eater, but this was so full of yummy things!! it was great, especially on a cold winter day. - 18 Mar 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I was amazed that this recipe did not call for any seasonings, not even salt! The recipe itself is very bland, so I added italian seasoning and garlic salt. I would have also preferred a greater variety of vegetables. I added some spinach. After a few modifications, my family gobbled it up. - 11 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe alone does not make minestrone soup in my opinion. It had no flavor and did not resemble any minestrone I have ever tasted. However, with this recipe and some ideas I got by looking at other minestrone recipes it turned out to be pretty tasty. - 03 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
