This is a wonderful soup recipe. I have been making this for 40 years and my family loves it. Serve topped with Parmesan cheese and piping hot crusty bread.

Using Italian sausage in a minestrone soup is a delicious twist in this recipe. It adds tons of flavor to the soup. Different veggies, like zucchini and carrots, not only add texture but add to the overall flavor. This minestrone is warm and comforting. Perfect for a cold day. Definitely try this simple soup recipe and make sure to have warm crusty bread on hand for dipping. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
