Olive Garden Minestrone Soup
By Todd Wilbur

Recipe Type: Soup
Calories: 100
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Recipe Rating: 3.7 (6 reviews)
Menu Description: "Fresh vegetables, beans and pasta in a light tomato broth - a vegetarian classic."

This classic Italian soup is jam-packed with beans, zucchini, onion, tomatoes, carrots, pasta, and spices; but O.G.'s secret formula doesn't include chicken broth. Canned vegetable broth found in the soup aisle of most markets works as a base here in this secret formula that bursts with flavor as a purely vegetarian dish.

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup minced white onion (about 1 small onion)

My daughter LOVES Olive Garden's Minestrone Soup, I've tried other recipes with no luck. This one is right on, she likes extra noodles so I cook my noodles seperate and than add them to the soup, she LOVES it. I freeze it and now she can have it anytime without going out. Thanks Todd for another GREAT recipe, keep it up.

My family loves this soup. I thought it was thicker than Olive Garden's soup which was a plus for me. I actually liked it more than Olive Garden's.

My family and I thought my first attempt at a TSR was not quite the same as Olive Garden's original recipe, but we all really enjoyed it! Yum!

I have had loads of fun in the kitchen thanks to Todd and have had great results with all of his stuff but this just doesn't live up. The color and texture look right but the taste just isn't there.
