Minestrone Soup

This soup is perfect anytime of the year. It is refreshing in the summer months and warming on a cold winters day. Most kids love is as it is like a pasta dish so most don’t even notice all the healthy veggies. You can change the veggies to your families favourites if you prefer. Add chicken to make it a hearty main meal.
