Just in case some of you have assigned your cholesterol levels to the fat gods, some cooked and finely chopped bacon bits adds another lovely depth to this already fabulous soup. I also add a little handful of small pasta, like Ditalini.

I know it would not be true minestrone after my doctoring, but some nicely browned steak or stew meat would be my additions of choice. Looking forward to a crock pot full of this!

Did a very similar recipe tonight, except added 1.25# ground turkey and used a lot of spinach instead of cabbage.

I often like sausage in soups like these.

Spicy turkey, a couple of links, contents squeezed out and browned.  then I spoon out the animal fat and add grapeseed oil.  Then a tsp. of Tony's Chachare to make up for the spiciness lost when I spooned out the animal fat.

I made it tonight. I followed the recipe and added some pasta to it. I seasoned it heavily with salt and pepper to my taste...and it was great! Thanks for posting.
