Soup, Maureenís Minestrone Soup

Introduction

Minestrone is a traditional Italian soup, we like to serve it with warm crusty bread, and yet there is no set recipe for minestrone, since it is usually made out of whatever vegetables are in season. It can be vegetarian, contain meat, or contain a meat-based broth (such as chicken stock).
