My Husband & I love this recipe. I did add some garlic and sauted kalbasa. This is a keeper. Nice change from Sunday chili.
I find many great recipes on Kraftfoods but this was not one of them.This was the worst soup I have ever tasted. All of it went into the trash.
I have made this many times. Yummy on a cold day or any other.Nice with a crusty bread.
We love any Minestrone Soup and this recipe was no exception! A little bland but you can always add more spices and a little more of the Zesty Italian Dressing. Fresh Parmesan on top is a must!
Great! Second time I made it, I added 1 lb. of beef stew meat, 16 oz. of tomato sauce, and half a tsp. extra of italain seasoning to give it a twist. It was amazing. Thank you Kraft!!!
This turned out to be one of THE BEST soups I've ever made. However, I tweaked it quite a bit compared to the recipe (which I had made almost exactly the way the original recipe calls for it about 3 wks ago and was pretty good...this new way was better!)...if you'd like to know what I did, here it is: 3/4 cup Zesty Italian, 1/2 onion chopped, 1 stalk celery chopped, 1 carrot, 1 can diced tomatoes that had garlic/onion in it, only a 1/2 can of kidney beans, 32 oz. chicken broth, 2 cups water, 1 tsp. Italian seasoning, 1 1/4 cup small shells, and 2 tsp. minced garlic...also add 1/2 tsp. garlic salt and 1/2 tsp. fresh ground pepper, along with 2-3 Italian sausage links sliced up and added at the beginning, and it was FANTASTIC! Enjoy :)
I didn't use the slow cooker, just cooked everything on the stove top. I found it to be a little bland. I would also add a few more veggies next time- zucchini and spinach, and maybe some tomato sauce. I did like the zesty Italian in it, that makes everything taste better!
This was so easy and it so yummy !! I'm going to make this all winter long.
This soup was absolutely delicious! This was one of the best homemade soups I have ever eaten. My husband works at the Olive garden as a manager and he told me that my minestrone soup was better than the restaurants! This recipe is definitely a keeper.
The Zesty Italian Dressing gave it an awesome flavor!
