      Made this for the first time & do believe this recipe puts the Minestroni at the local Olive Garden to shame! Made mine vegetarian by omitting sausage & adding Great Northern beans for the protein.My Italian mother-in-law was impressed.

      Nice minestrone - used approx. 2# sicilian-style italian sausage & leftover home canned tomato sauce for the canned tomatoes. Left out the margarine & flour & added a cup each of cooked dark red kidney & garbanzo beans & 2 stalks of leafy celery to the listed veggies. Used basil & oregano still hanging on out in the last of the garden - tripled them as they were fresh & not dried. Threw in some fresh italian parsley that was looking good while out in the yard too. Made the house smell so good on a damp chilly November day! Great flavor, good vegies & complex carbs... couldn't ask for more. Thank you wildheart for a nice staple recipe.
