How To Make Easy Minestrone Soup
A quick and comforting Italian dish, this minestrone soup comes with beans, tomatoes, and zucchini simmered in a flavorful broth.
In a large 4 to 5 quart saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Mix in garlic, onion, and carrots. Saute the vegetables for approximately 5 minutes until just tender.
Add tomatoes with juice, cannellini beans, and kidney beans to the saucepan. Fill each can with water, and add the water to the saucepan.
Mix in green beans and zucchini. Sprinkle parsley, basil, oregano, Italian seasoning, bay leaves, chicken-style seasoning, and cayenne pepper into the soup. Stir well.
Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer. Cover, and let simmer for 30 minutes.
