Minestrone is actually one of my very favorite soups, with vegetables, beans, and pasta all in one bowl. I’ve posted a Fall Minestrone which includes butternut squash, and a White Bean and Escarole soup which reminds me of minestrone.
But this soup is the real deal with onions, carrots, celery, zucchini, tomatoes, kidney beans, lima beans, cabbage, small elbows, and yes, red wine. It’s also a crockpot recipe, so you can get your soup going and go on with your day. When your homework/errands/house chores are done, you can pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy a great bowl of soup. This is another recipe that makes many servings, and 3 containers went immediately to my freezer. I loved this soup though, and know that I’ll be happy to defrost them in the coming weeks.
