Minestrone Soup (Olive Garden Copycat)
Minestrone soup is so hearty it can stand on its own as the main dish! I fell in love with minestrone at the Olive Garden, so this is a pretty darn close attempt at copying the classic Italian soup.
Servings 10 servings
Preheat the pot with olive oil, add zucchini, carrots, celery and onions. Sautee for about 10 minutes, until vegetables soften.
To the pot, add canned diced tomatoes. Season with Italian seasoning and dry basil.
Add vegetable broth, noodles, kidney and Great Northen beans. Simmer for about 10 minutes. Depending on the thickness of the soup, you can add 2 more cups of water to the mix.
Press garlic into the mixture and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.
Serve while the minestrone soup is still warm.
