Spring Minestrone

This Spring Minestrone combines spring veggies with white beans in a flavorful broth, and it makes the perfect light and healthy meal!  It is even more flavorful the next day, so you can make it ahead of time and enjoy it later.  I like it with a nice piece of crusty sourdough bread or a side salad!
