    Love watching your YouTube channel. And am really happy to see that you are publishing on this website (since I could never find the recipes in the box below the videos). I made this Minestrone Soup for my husband and I, with a few additions (hamburger, pinto beans in addition to the kidney beans, and frozen green beans). It was great with the Parmesan cheese on top. My husband called it “hearty.” The green beans got a little soggy and I wouldn’t add them again. Thanks for being there. You are inspiring!

  2. Thank you for sharing all of your delicious recipes! I think this one has been my most favorite of yours that I’ve tried, and even my family raves about how good it is! I haven’t added or taken anything out of this, but think I might try adding some mushrooms and maybe some kind of meat into the next one for a different vibe. I LOVE how much this makes, too! Always too much to store for only me in my fridge so I take it into work and watch my coworkers nearly strangle each other to get a bowl before it’s gone.
