It’s feeling like soup time around here in Wisconsin! The past weekend, I put together this minestrone soup I wanted to share with you all. Feel free to add or omit to your liking! I have a tendency to keep adding to the pot as I go! We are calling it Garden to Table Minestrone as I tried to remember all the veggies I grew and still had available to toss into this nutrient packed soup! Enjoy!
