Minestrone in a Bread Bowl

Perfect for a cold, rainy night. Minestrone in a Bread Bowl.

My version is very simple:
Your favorite veggies (I don't like very many so the soup is limited to):
carrots
celery
onion
garlic
a can of whole plum tomatoes, here is something interesting I read about canned tomatoes..... The article said diced tomatoes are made from the worst of the crop. If you buy whole tomatoes and chop them yourself you are getting the better part of the crop. I don't know if it's true but I followed the advice and put a large can of whole tomatoes in the food processor instead of buying the cannned diced.
a can of white cannellini beans
bay leaf
oregano
thyme
salt
pepper
chicken stock
your choice of noodles. I used the mutli-colored kind from Trader Joes.
Put everything in a pot and cook until veggies are tender.
Then ladle into a bread bowl and enjoy. I sprinkle a little parmesean on top.
YUM!
