Minestrone Soup

So old man winter is still in control of the weather and last month our soup was a big hit. So this month we feature another family favorite soup. If you missed last months recipe check it out here if you are interested. Again, this is a fairly easy one pot meal. It will fill the house with delicious smells teasing you with what is to come. It is good by itself but we love it with a good bit of salty parmesan cheese on top.  Enjoy!
