This is not typically what I think of as minestrone, but what matters is that what's in the bowl is tasty. And this wasn't bad, not bad at all, expecially given all the shortcuts! I reserved some of the meat from a rotisserie chicken and made broth with the rest. I didn't care for the idea of canned peas so, in keeping with what a true minestrone is, I made use of what I had in the fridge - baby spinach and mushrooms. I didn't think such few ingredients would make a very good soup, particularly since the tomatoes didn't really have enough time to cook with the broth, onion, etc. Also, I just used regular diced tomatoes and seasoned the soup with dried basil and oregano. This was surprisingly delicious, although to my credit I did use, in my opinion, a better choice with the spinach and mushrooms than with the canned peas! And no minestrone would be complete without freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (or Romano) cheese! A surprisingly good, basic, shortcut recipe.
