Minestrone Soup or Zuppa!!!

 Buongiorno!    Good  Morning!

 This Italian Vegetable soup is loaded with veggies and an Italian family favorite. Enjoy!

 Hearty and just the right soup to make on this cold and windy day.. The flavor is amazing and packed with healthy goodness in every bite. A good choice for your family to get 5 veggies or more vegetables in your food plan.

Note:  If you want to make this with some sausage you can easily do it.
Before adding your veggies brown slightly some sausage, cut into slices and add to your ingredients while cooking.

Happy Cooking from my kitchen to yours!
