Minestrone Soup

Minestrone Soup

I really love this recipe. I’m not a huge soup fan but when I got my Instant Pot (gift from my wife) I wanted to try something that was easy. Don’t wait for a cold day to make this. It will warm the cockles of your heart.

You don’t have to use gluten free pasta but if you or your family are living gluten free, this tasty dish will please. I used lentils when I made it. Use your favorite legume. You can’t go wrong. A good crusty bruchetta bread with a drop of olive makes a nice accompaniment for dipping. Enjoy!
