Summer Minestrone Soup

The following recipe and photography was provided by Christina Musgrave of Tasting with Tina.

Minestrone is a crowd favorite – with veggies, pasta and beans, it’s a true Italian classic. In honor of the large assortment of Midwest grown produce available at Heinen’s, I decided to give this delicious soup a summertime twist!

Filled with tons of fresh summer vegetables and Heinen’s artisan organic bagged pasta, this recipe is a summer delight.

It is also a great meal prep recipe if you’re looking for a lighter lunch to enjoy throughout the week. Pair with a light salad and you’ve got a balanced meal that will satisfy your hunger and your taste buds.
