  1. Thanks Kathy! I hope you liked it. It’s one of my favorite warm, hearty, easy winter meals. I usually just throw in whatever vegetables I have in the fridge or freezer, so it’s a little different every time. Sometimes I add a cup of tomato sauce – to make it more of a Minestrone. The best part about this recipe is I always have leftovers for lunch the next day!
