Recipe For Homemade Minestrone Soup.

Minestrone means the big soup or a soup with many ingredients. It's a thick Italian Soup with vegetables and quite often pasta or rice or both is added to the soup. The more common ingredients include onions , beans , celery , carrots , zucchini squash , and tomatoes. If you want a real authentic flavor you should use Italian tomatoes or diced fresh plum tomatoes.

Minestrone really is the cornerstone of Italian cuisine and you can make a really delicious meal by making homemade minestrone soup and serving homemade home grilled mozzarella sandwiches with your homemade minestrone soup. We make our mozzarella sandwiches by trimming the crust off white bread and we purchase water packed fresh mozzarella to make our grilled mozzarella sandwiches with. And we fry our homemade mozzarella sandwiches with real butter. Fry your sandwiches in real melted butter until your sandwiches are golden brown on each side. Then serve them with your homemade minestrone soup for one of the most delicious meals you will ever eat.

Here is one of the most delicious recipes for Minestrone you will ever eat.

1. 4 Tablespoons Olive Oil.

2. 1 Large Peeled And Diced Carrot.

3. 1 Large Celery Stalk Diced Fine.

Just made this for supper and it's very yummy, warming especially on a cold rainy spring night in Wisconsin. Although next time I'll use maybe only 1/2 tsp of Cayenne pepper, a little to hot for my 3 and 6 year old children but perfect for my husband and myself. Thanks for sharing it. Didn't make the moz sand though, made my French bread and Stromboli for my little dippers in this wonderful soup.
