Garden Minestrone Soup

Can you believe this whole list of veggies came out of my parents garden?! They had quite the harvest this year, and it was so fun to eat a combination of their harvest all in one dish. My mom made this delicious soup with such a yummy "fresh from the earth" flavor. I am in the mood for another bowl right now... guess I'll have to wait til next year. :) Hope you won't! Great way to get your veggies in! My girls loved it!

Garden Minestrone Soup
1 cup water
olive oil
summer squash
fresh green beans
beef bullion
Parmesan rind
salt and pepper
Italian Seasoning
Fresh Basil
Parmesan cheese

Slice, chop, and prepare veggies. Simmer all but the beans and cabbage in olive oil, including Parmesan rind, and a stem of fresh basil (that you pull out in the end) with the lid on until the veggies soften and cheese melts, pour in water and bullion mixed. Sprinkle in salt, pepper, and seasonings. Serve warm, topped with Parmesan cheese.
