COOKBOOK: Grandma’s Special Recipes

RATE: ❤️❤️❤️❤️👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻💲💲💲

Good old minestrone! Have I made this before!? Of course I have, but not from this cookbook! Love the name “Grandma’s Special Recipes” and boy was it delicious!

I call this a vegetable medley. It has nine different vegetables plus red kidney beans, macaroni and herbs. This is the type of dish that can turn me into a vegetarian.

As you know when there is various vegetables involved, you require some time to prepare and this recipe needs just that. Yes, a little time consuming to make but super healthy and delicious to eat!
