Barefoot Contessa's Winter Minestrone & Garlic Bruschetta. This is an amazingly good soup! I did not have the pancetta available to put in the soup, so I substituted a good thick smokey bacon, and thought it was fabulous. I also made the crusty bread recipe that I found on Pinterest with this, and it was a great addition. Easy and a fast hearty soup to make! 10 Stars!!!
