EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

(Total time will vary with appliance and setting.)

Minestrone means "big soup", and this big soup needs only thick slices of a whole-grain bread to make a big meal.

Kids will love the little corkscrew rotini pasta in this vegetable-packed soup, but any small pasta works just as well.
