Minestrone Soup is one that Big Daddy loves, but I am not fond of, sadly. I made it anyway cause I love him like that! Honestly, I just can’t get behind this one. I have tried but just can’t do it. Now, I can slurp up the broth like no one is watching. That brings me peace. Maybe it is the beans. Just not my jam.
4 c. vegetable broth (vegetarian)
2 cans stewed tomatoes
kidney beans, 1 can
1 potato, large, cubed
2 celery stalks, chopped
3 c. corn
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 head of cabbage, finely chopped (I put through the food processor)
pasta, around 1 c.
2 T. Italian Seasoning
Mix all together in a large pot (minus the pasta). Bring to a boil and then reduce heat, cover and simmer until the vegetables are all tender. In the last 15 minutes, add the pasta. You certainly do not want to overcook the pasta. It still needs a bite to it or al dente. The fancy people say that. Us Southerners don’t say fancy words like that. It is easy to overcook pasta.
