Now that we're in the depths of a bitterly-cold winter, we really need to pull out all the stops to ensure that we make it to spring in one piece. And a hearty minestrone soup recipe is just the dish to help you through.

With a minestrone soup you get the richness of a tomatoey base, all the right vegetables to enhance the flavor, and protein-rich white beans to make it feel hearty. In this recipe, there are also little bits of pancetta -- just to make us happy. To make this minestrone soup recipe even better, we suggest serving it with a crusty, country bread.
