As a kid I really loved Minestrone as it has that complete components and ingredients anyone would be looking for in a soup, the potatoes, carrots, celery, beans, tomatoes and most especially the “Bacon” which I generally agree that you won’t go wrong with.

So instead of calling the local Chinese delivery or any other hot pot and ramen place for some take-outs, why not make this traditional Italian soup filled with all the goodness and benefits it brings rather than some MSG filled broth…
