Dinner for lastnight+tonight: Minestrone Soup and Olive Garden Breadsticks

Minestrone Soup Recipe
Copycat Olive Garden Breadsticks

Amazing! the soup is basically vegan which works good for me since im trying to eat less meat unless its local/organic/etcetcetc...also the only change i made was 1) I didnt have 2 veggies on the list (the zuchinni and onion) but i used dried onion and it worked fine. and 2) I used dried beans instead of canned since i have so many of them, but make sure to soak them the night ahead other wise they turn out kinda crunchy...i found out the hard way.
Despite the beans, the soup turned out amazing!
 
Make sure to have time for the breadsticks to rise otherwise you will have HEAVY breadsticks and eating one will feel like you just ate 5....
 
Great dinner=great leftovers for tonight:)
