Oh, that looks so good . . . it has been so cold here, I woke up to 14 degrees this morning. A great time of the year for hot soup, in fact that's what I'm having for dinner tonight :)

Minestrone is one of my favorite soups. I tend to use smaller pasta, but yours looks much better than mince, so perhaps I need to up my pasta game.
