Quick Italian Minestrone Soup

Kim Biegacki


Wow, what a comforting bowl of soup. I love the savoy cabbage in the soup as it is lighter in flavor and cooks up faster than other cabbages. Plus, I love all the veggies in it and eating a bowl of this soup on a cold winter's night. I hope you enjoy it too.

Weight Watcher value:4 points for 1 1/3 cup of Minestrone! A great dish to fill up on.

How to Make Quick Italian Minestrone Soup


  • 1Put all ingredients in a pot on the stove (except, zucchini, squash and noodles) and cook it only about an hour. Since I used Savoy cabbage it cooks up much quicker.
  • 2Put your zucchini and squash in about 15 minutes before serving and cook your noodles up at the same time.
  • 3Add your cooked noodles to the bowl.....measure them out 1/2 or whatever your allotment of pasta is.
  • 4Next ladle your minestrone soup over your noodles, add some fresh cracked pepper and a dash or two of parmesan and romano cheese.
