The word minestrone means “big soup” in Italian, and that’s just what this is: a richly flavored, chunky vegetable and-pasta soup.This version is in bianco, which is to say, white, or without tomato. Feel free to add a couple of diced peeled plum tomatoes, if you like.

Hands down, the best minestrone I have ever tasted! The Roasted Vegetable Broth makes it. I added some Rancho Gordo cranberry beans and did add the pasta as called for in the recipe so it could absorb all those wonderful flavors. My husband, who is a meat and potatoes guy, loved it.
I have not made minestrone before, and this was delicious! I used the veggie broth recipe for the base. I didn't cook the pasta in the soup, nor did I add the potato and corn because I'm a type 2 kind of girl. I cooked the pasta separately and added to the hubs bowl. We loved this. VERY filling. I couldn't finish my bowl of minestrone.
