Since it's the middle of winter, and I still can't quite kick my wintertime cold, homemade soup sounds perfect to me. I'm making homemade minestrone tonight and was wondering what various ingredients my fellow chowhounds add to theirs to make it special & unique? I typically use fresh zuccini & greenbeans, as well as some summercrisp corn, and lots of fresh grated parmesan. Would love to hear your suggestions for a super soup! Ciao, hounds!
