Minestrone Soup

I have always heard that soup is good for the soul. This is so true, soup just fills you with comfort and is just plain good foodies!  
Total satisfaction!

There is no set recipe for Minestrone, the term Minestrone  is normally used to describe a thick vegetable soup usually with pasta.   I listed my veggies but please feel free to exchange according to your likes.

Just a whole pot of goodness for the soul!
Serve with Crunchy Bread and a little Parmesan cheese.
