Italian Minestroni Soup

minnestroni3I think almost every nationality has an “end of the week” soup. You know the kind where you empty the left overs into a nice pot of delicious goodness?

Here is my simple out of the pantry rendition.
Its winter and on chilly nights a nice bowl of hearty hot soup with fresh french bread certainly is welcome.

My Italian Herb recipe can be found HERE.

I try to keep a well stocked pantry with all of the things we use most. I am not one for getting up in the morning and HAVING TO VISIT THE MARKET to make lunch and dinner.

On whim I can cook up something good in an emergency or non-emergency for that matter. :)
