Minestrone is a classic vegetable soup that you’ll see on the menu at just about any Italian restaurant. Made with seasonal vegetables such as squash, zucchini, potatoes and green beans, minestrone also typically contains tomatoes, cannellini beans, small pasta noodles and tomatoes.
Everyone makes chicken noodle soup a little differently, but the base of most recipes starts with celery, carrots and onions with roasted chicken and egg noodles in a hearty chicken broth. Herbs like basil, oregano, thyme or rosemary and garlic are often added to recipes for extra flavor.
Believe it or not, Italian wedding soup isn’t actually served at weddings. This soup got its name from the Italian phrase minestra maritata (“married soup”) which refers to how the soup perfectly “marries” the flavors of greens and meat together.
