This is going to be a very fast post without all the extra chit-chat about my day. I am super tired, but promised a lot of you to have the recipe up tonight. So here it is!

A couple months ago, I made a minestrone soup. I fell in love with everything about it. I love the taste, the convenience of having it through out the week and the warmth it brings during the cold months. The weather has been pretty cold down here in Georgia, so I decided to make the minestrone soup. I took it in a different direction this time and made some ingredients swaps.

Here is the delicious recipe…

I keep the soup stored in a couple containers in the refrigerator.

It’s a favorite in this house! I like to add cottage cheese and rice cakes to mine! Jeremy likes to add mozzarella and croutons!
