I love soup. This is a delicious one and, as an added bonus, it is healthy too. More of my delicious recipes are on my blog @ LettheFeastyBegin.blogspot.com

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Hearty, flavorful and classic... This Italian minestrone soup recipe is a soup lover's delight. It's special because of the assortment of vegetables inside - zucchini, yellow squash, tomato, bell peppers, carrots, and onion. The broth has a wonderful flavor - you taste basil and oregano in each bite. It's a bright, fresh soup that is well complemented with a big piece of rustic Italian bread.
