Vegetable Minestrone Soup

Vegetable Minestrone Soup

Want a meal to be filling and super-healthy? ‘Soup’ is the way to go; the one with lots of veggies, beans of your choice, and some comforting pasta cooked in a tasty, spicy broth which is exactly what this ‘Vegetable Minestrone Soup’ is! I love all the delicious cheesy food at ‘Olive Garden’ once in a while. But the next day, reality hits in and I cringe about all the unnecessary calories from the previous day’s feast! Then, I comfort myself saying it’s ok to indulge once in a while! Anyway, the best options at that restaurant to me are the garden salads and the soups. How good and lip smacking are they? So, last week I really wanted to make this soup and when I did to my delight it was really close to the one at the restaurant!

This recipe contains tomatoes (diced), zucchini, carrots, beans (cannellini), pasta (elbow, whole wheat), oil (vegetable), onions, , bay leaves, cinnamon stick, cloves, basil (dried), black pepper, chili powder, salt, cheese (parmesan), paprika
