“My hubby and I went to Carrabba's tonight for dinner and I had a wonderful bowl of their Minestrone Soup. I begged them for the recipe but they said it's secret and are not allowed to give it out. So, as soon as I got home, I googled it and found this recipe at a copycat recipe website. I only hope that it comes close! I have no idea of the serving size that this recipe makes though.”
1 large bowl of soup
