How to Make Mighty Good Minestrone Soup


  • 1Bring 8 cups of water to a boil. Add diced potato and celery and cook until almost tender but still firm.
  • 2Lower heat. Whisk in dry soup mix. Add remaining ingredients.
  • 3Slow cook until pasta and veggies are tender. (Soup mix says 15 min. but I like to cook mine longer so flavors blend together.)
