I bought a package of dry minestrone soup mix (Bear Creek) and didn't care for the taste. This is my doctored up version and it is very good!

How to Make Mighty Good Minestrone Soup


  1. Bring 8 cups of water to a boil. Add diced potato and celery and cook until almost tender but still firm.
  2. Lower heat. Whisk in dry soup mix. Add remaining ingredients.
  3. Slow cook until pasta and veggies are tender. (Soup mix says 15 min. but I like to cook mine longer so flavors blend together.)
  4. Serve with good crusty bread. You can sprinkle top of soup with shredded parmesan cheese too.
