If you are from the area, you may have heard of the Venus DeMilo restaurant and their infamous minestrone soup. Well, I used their soup as my inspiration when creating this recipe. It came out quite close! I used the Del Monte mixed vegetables since it is closest to the veggies used in their soup. But feel free to use another brand if Del Monte is not available to you. Enjoy!
