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
