About

This is a recipe that my mom got from a friend. My mom made this soup a little bit ago and brought me some. I snapped a picture before I ate it. It was so yummy I had to share this recipe. Plus, if I made it no one in my house would eat it. The soup has too many veggies for my family. I absolutely loved it. This minestrone soup is a little different because it all starts with some bacon, which gives this soup wonderful flavor. Delish!
