Christian’s a good cook, but can get a bit flustered at times so the fact that he told me that this was an easy recipe means it really is easy which makes it perfect for weeknights. And we both think that it turned out a restaurant quality soup...so much so that we had a hard time restraining ourselves and saving enough for our leftovers night!

We've been making this summer soup for years, it's from my favorite soup cookbook, "Soup: Superb Ways with a Classic Dish." Many Italian summer minestrone recipes include pesto to stir in at the end, but this is so flavorful that I don't feel that it's necessary. Helps keep the calorie count down as well so I can dip big chunks of whole grain bread in it instead!
