Garden to Table Minestrone Soup

Bring all the flavors of summer together in this classic Italian dish. Like Nonna, use whatever vegetables you have on hand for your own version of Minestrone.




  1. In a large dutch oven or soup pot, sauté garlic, onion, bell pepper, and carrots in olive oil until tender. Add zucchini, broth, water, beans, and pasta. Bring to a gentle boil, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10-12 minutes or until pasta is tender. Stir in tomatoes, spinach, and fresh basil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with more fresh basil and parmesan cheese.
