This nutritious vegetable soup is one of the most popular Italian dishes. In Italy, Minestrone's can contain rice, garlic, tomatoes, dried beans, etc... Each region has its own version. When you cook Minestrone, try to make a larger quantity because the leftover soup that is reboiled the following day (called "Ribolitas") is even more delicious!
