Minestrone Soup Rhonda's

Rhonda E!


I like a good clean soup without anything heavy in it to eat healthy, So I make chicken stock without any grease or meat and I save it in the freezer and extra veggies until I get enough ingredients to make a Minestrone Medley. This time instead of adding cooked Pasta I used Barley. This makes for a nice change of pace and next time I can use Pasta. Hope you like my recipe.
