Minestrone Soup

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 can’t get behind this one. I have tried but 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.

Four c. vegetable broth (vegetarian)

Two cans of stewed tomatoes

kidney beans, one can

zucchini, cubed

One potato, large, cubed

onion, chopped

Two celery stalks, chopped

Three c. corn

Two cloves of garlic, minced

One head of cabbage, finely chopped (I put it 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. We Southerners don’t say fancy words like that. It is easy to overcook pasta.
