“A very basic Outline on how I make my Minestrone Soup.” Ann
Very Rich Beef Broth, preferably homemade, but canned will work
Parmesan Cheese (optional)
I like to add some broccoli and cauliflower to my minestrone soup as well.
Make Beef broth or use canned.
Sauté onions, celery, carrots in olive oil, add garlic and add beef broth and canned tomatoes
Season with basil, salt and pepper.
Simmer for 30 minutes and then add green beans, zucchini and simmer for another 20 minutes.
If using broccoli or cauliflower add now as well.
Add kidney beans and chickpeas and spinach.
Cook the pasta separately.
To serve ladle soup into bowls, add some of the cooked pasta and a dollop of pesto and
sprinkle with fresh parmesan cheese.
