Minestrone is always a crowd-pleaser. It’s also a great way to empty out your fridge of any excess vegetables you may have lurking about. I really like getting my kids involved when I make minestrone. I let them dig through the fridge and pick out which veggies they want to add and then which type of pasta. I’ve had to make minestrone before with three different types of pasta thanks to my toddler.
