Instant Pot Minestrone Soup

Howdy all! 

Sorry I haven’t posted in a couple of days. I went through a tonsillectomy and had some complications so I’ve been bed ridden for a couple of days. 

Being able to eat only soft foods and this cold winter-like weather means only one thing...SOUP! This Instant Pot Minestrone Soup is the BEST of both worlds! 

Not only was this soup easy to eat, but it’s LOADED with veggies and all around good for your soul! 😜

This recipe got even better in my books when our little ones each devoured a bowl. I may or may not have told them it was spaghetti soup but hey, a WIN is a WIN! 🙃

 

Alright, enough of the chit chat, just COOK IT already!
