This delicious vegetable minestrone soup is not just packed with nutrients and antioxidants obtained from the vegetables, but also it is the whole wheat pasta that matters. Opting for whole wheat ensures the most nutritional benefits, including the bran and the germ's vitamin E, major B vitamins, antioxidants, appetite-squashing fiber, protein, and healthy fats.
