This was so sooo delicious! It embodies classic minestrone as a comfort food. As usual though, I couldn't help but add my own twist on it and if any of my changes appeal to you please use them! First of all I halved the recipe so my alterations were applied as such: 1 cup can diced tomato in place of 1 cup of tomato sauce, about 1/4 cup chardonnay, juice of 1 lime, splash of red wine vinegar, 8 oz can garbanzo beans in place of green beans, 1 yellow squash in place of 1 zucchini, 1 roasted red bell pepper, 6 oz chicken breast pieces, and I used mini farfalle (bow ties) instead of shells. For more seasoning I added about 2 tbsp sugar and a pinch of each of these: red pepper flakes, cumin, thyme, rosemary, paprika, and 1 bay leaf. I also made parmesean crisps instead of sprinkling it on top. After trying it both ways I think sprinking it on top is indeed better!
