Minestrone Soup

This is a delicious variation of  my All-You-Can-Eat Soup Diet Basic Recipe. I make the basic recipe and the put it into containers, some go in the fridge and the rest go in the freezer for when I need them. Oh, I don't tell Bubba and the Crew, that they are actually eating healthy when I make something with the basic recipe. If they knew I would have a riot on my hands!!!

My Boys welcome a steaming bowl of this vegetable-bean soup on a cold winter night. It even tastes better reheated, so its a good choice to make in advance.
