“I could never find a "minestrone" recipe that everyone really liked, so I derived this version from my family's favorite ingredients. After I prepare this soup, I pour it all into a large crockpot and keep it on "low" for a few hours. Then my teenage boys, Grandpap, and my wife can all serve themselves; since they all have different schedules.”
