New Fashioned Pesto Minestrone Bisque Soup Recipe


If you love veggie soups as much as my family do, then my New-Fashioned Pesto Minestrone Bisque Soup will make your mouth happy. This isn't a complicated recipe and you can find every ingredient at your local grocery store. I make this throughout the year, whether it be 90 degrees F. outside (or 28 F.) it doesn't matter to my family. I make soups all year long and this recipe, during August is like a transition from Summer to Autumn by adding the "bisque" part (the cream.) It makes the old-fashioned minestrone feel like the fireplace is a coming! :) Although this recipe seems like there is a ton of ingredients and a lot of chopping involved, which there is, you can always visit the produce section of your grocery store where nowadays they are preparing things already diced and sliced for us. That will save time and all you have to do is put it together. My minestrone has a ton of nutrition, flavor an texture to it. You can add whatever you like on top (that's comforting for the wintery part of the year,) like croutons and cheese. This is a wonderful soup that freezes extremely well and I hope that you try it. Enjoy!
