Minestrone soup needn’t come from a can when it’s this simple to make. This is my fail-safe recipe and one I do, usually right before I’m about to go on holiday and need to empty the fridge. Make it for a light dinner, healthy lunch or make and freeze into individual portions for a quick and easy supper.
