Minestrone Soup

We love Minestrone Soup. While adding pasta is not necessary alittle bit of Gnocchetti Sardi is so delicious in the soup. Also this recipe is very versitle depending on the season. This is a more fall vegetable (winter squash and kale) driven recipe. 

In the spring we make this minestrone with peas, green beans and kolhrabi.

In the summer we add extra cherry tomatoes, roasted eggplant, and roasted peppers to this soup. The pastabilities are endless!
