The Frostop in Petersburg was well known for their coneys. This is their recipe. We have enjoyed this recipe in our family for years.

I was given this recipe from a good friend in Seattle. Its really wonderful! I don't even like Minestrone but I love this.
4 slices bacon, fried and crumbled (optional) 3TBS olive oil 1 med. onion, chopped 3 garlic cloves, chopped 1 lg. can (28oz.) crushed tomatoes 2 med. carrots, sliced 1 cup sliced zucchini rounds 1 can Campbell's 'Bean with Bacon' soup 2 cans beef broth 1/3 head cabbage, shredded 1 tsp. dried sweet basil 1/4 cup minced parsley
Shredded Parmesan cheese
Cook bacon and set aside. Saute garlic and onion in oil until golden, stirring continuously. Add beef broth and vegetables and basil. Simmer until vegetables are tender (about 30 min.). Add Bean with Bacon soup and crumbled bacon and let cook for another 10 min. Serve with shredded Parmesan cheese and crusty bread.
*I put the cheese in the bowl and then ladle soup over it so it melts.
