This soup is the kind of soup for me that I just add what I like and still keep with the Minestrone Soup theme.
I start off with olive oil and onion, garlic, carrots, celery. When I am finished it's the Pesto on top that makes this soup
for Chuck and I. We just have to have it on top. It cooks up pretty quick also. Good bread and dinner is served. Now I
need to go and see what bread I can cook up sorta quick. I'll let ya know. Ok so I have this Sourdough Starter in my fridge and every
Tuesday now I have to feed it. I know strange. But before I feed the beast I wanted to use the part I am supposed to throw out, so I
found a recipe that I like and made rather large buns so Chuck could make a sandwich with later.
1 medium onion chopped
3 cloves of garlic minced
2 or 3 carrots chopped
3 or 4 celery stalks with the heart and small leaves, chopped
