I named this delicious Minestrone Soup, make it your way! Because I never really make it the same, twice! Now if this type of craziness would drive you bonkers, them feel free to just follow the recipe, every single time. I’m a recipe follower, but I do just throw whatever in soups!

Classic Minestrone was made to use up all those leftover vegetables in the fridge. You know, the forgotten ones that go to the back, also known as leftover Siberia. LOL!

BROTH: I use chicken broth in my soup, only because that is what I generally have on. hand. Feel free to use vegetable broth.

VEGGIES: Also feel free to add whatever vegetables you have on hand, such as:

  • baby spinach
  • zucchini
  • green beans

PASTA: Any small shell pasta will work great! I use gluten free penne most of the time. Only because it’s what I have a large assortment of in my pantry!

Really anything goes, it’s not called Make It Your Way Minestrone Soup for no reason!

  1. Heat 1/4 cup of vegetable OR olive oil over medium heat in a large stock pot.
  2. Saute onion, celery, garlic, and carrots, in the oil for 4-5 minutes or until onions begin to turn translucent.
  3. Add chicken OR vegetable broth to pot, plus tomato sauce and diced tomatoes, beans, carrot, water, and spices.
  4. Bring soup to a boil, then reduce heat and allow to simmer for 15 minutes.
  5. Add pasta and cook for an additional 10-12 minutes or until desired consistency.

Substitute gluten free pasta for the regular noodles. Also, always double check any broth you use. There’s often hidden gluten in chicken broth.
