I made this soup a few years ago when we lived in the mountains and it was so good in the cold weather. I remembered a delicious homemade Minestrone soup I had made, but couldn't remember where I had gotten the recipe! Finally, I found it and made it again. It is the one I remembered, really delicious and flavorful. It's a great main dish for dinner, no matter the weather!
