This soup is very tasty and so easy to make! You can use any vegetable you want. I like to use Italian style green beans for more of a 'minestrone' style soup, or frozen corn is good, too. A simple bag of mixed frozen vegetables is a good solution to change the soup to suit the kids.

I keep basil pesto on hand to add great flavor in a variety of dishes. It's a very easy trick when you can't decide what spices to use. Pesto also has a nice olive oil finish which is perfect for savory soups and pasta dishes.
