This is by far the best minestrone I've ever had. My kids love it as well. I sometimes replace the Swiss chard with kale and it is equally good. I also add additional pepper, garlic, and vinegar.

WOW I made this on a fall day for lunch, and can say it is truly the best Ministrone I have ever had. I now have freezer portions, and can hardly wait to make it for a big family gathering. It is a new COMFORT FOOD....

I made this last night - to accompany some home made bread I'd made the day before. It's REALLY good. I was worried my family would turn their noses up at the chard, but my 3-yr. old gobbled up everything and then asked for more!
