About this recipe: This soup is warming, filling and delicious. It tastes best when you use fresh vegetables and herbs. If you like, you can replace the kidney beans with cannellini beans.

Used different ingredients. classic minestrone, I used chickpeas insted of kidney beans --next time I will presoak the beans, as they were a little chewy, and add the pasta last as it tends to dissintegrate after cooking long enough to make all the veggies as soft as I like. All in all everyone liked it , even my 16 year old who hates everything. - 24 Jul 2008

Altered ingredient amounts. I really enjoyed this healthy meal. It was more like a stew. I ended up using half of the veggies and an extra tin of tomatoes and it worked out really well. Very good meal for vegetarians or if you're on a diet! - 24 Jul 2008
