The food in the United States nowadays is really scary to me with all of the additives, GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms), trans fats and artificial this or that.

Happy Valentine’s Day! I thought this recipe would be appropriate!! My family and I went to a friend’s house a few weeks ago and had this delicious minestrone soup. I asked for the recipe to try at home (thanks, Ann!). I made it and again, it was delicious (if I do say so myself!). So, I wanted to share it with you. It is from the Detroit Free Press/Henry Ford Hospital Heart Smart Cookbook.
