Minestrone Soup

This is my own recipe. I love this soup in the winter, it fills you up and keeps you warm and toasty.

2 Small Potatoes, peeled and chopped
10 Mini Carrots or 2 Regular Carrots, peeled and chopped
1 Med. Onion, peeled and chopped
1 Can Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
2 T. Italian Seasoning
3 T. Garlic, Chopped
8 C. Water
12 Chicken Bullion Cubes
1 Can Tomato Paste
1 Zucchini, half peeled, chopped
1 Yellow Squash, half peeled and chopped
3/4 C. Mini Shell Noodles 
(Don't use more or they will soak up all the liquid and you won't have soup anymore)

  1. In a Large pot add all ingredients and bring to a boil 
  2. Lower temperature and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Serve with cheese toast. Yumm!!
When I say "half peeled" I peel a strip down the entire side then leave a strip then peel a strip and so on.That way you still have the nice green peel but not all the hardness from it. As you can see in the picture.
