Homemade Vegetable Minestrone Soup

Summer is here and my garden is producing an array of beautiful veggies. One of my favorite recipes to make with bountiful and beautiful produce is Minestrone Soup. My minestrone soup is hearty, flavorful and so good for you, loaded with summer squash, carrots, celery, peas, beans and potatoes makes for one filling meal. Even if you don't have a garden to pick from I am going to give you a supermarket ingredient list that makes for a quick fix. Today I am adding Tri-Color Cheese Tortellini to round out this meal into a one pot dinner winner recipe.
