The ingredients found in a good old-fashioned minestrone will vary greatly, simply because the soup is typically filled with whatever fresh local produce is currently in season. Potential ingredients -- apart from pasta, potatoes, beans and barley -- could include vegetables such as zucchini, spinach, cabbage, carrots, celery, onions, cauliflower, asparagus and peas. You might also detect hints of garlic, parsley, basil, chives or ground pepper.
