Minestrone with Broken Pasta
PREP 20 MIN•COOK 25 MIN
Minestrone is a rustic Italian soup that makes for a hearty, filling dinner. We've used broken spaghetti, but you can use any large pasta shape broken into pieces. This soup is perfect for freezing so make a big batch (leaving out the pasta), then add pasta as you reheat to have dinner on the table in minutes.
