Homemade Minestrone Soup

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.

4. 1 Large Purple Onion Diced Fine.

5. 1 Tablespoon Fresh Minced Garlic.

6. 8 Cups Chicken Broth.

7. 1/2 Small Head Cabbage.

8. 2 Regular Size Zucchini diced up fine.

9. 1/4 Cup Elbow Macaroni.

10. 1 10 Oz. Bag Fresh Spinach.

11. 1 Large Can White Kidney Beans.

12. 1 Large Can Red Kidney Beans.

13. 1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano.

14. 1 Teaspoon Fine Chopped Fresh Basil.

15. 1 Teaspoon Ground Cayenne Pepper.

16. 1 Teaspoon Ground Sea Salt.

17. 1 Large Can Diced Italian Tomatoes.

18. Fresh Basil For Garnish.

You want to start out by sauteing your garlic , celery , onion and carrot in your olive oil until tender.

Now add all your ingredients to a large stock pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low medium and cook for one hour until your ingredients cook up well together.

Now you want to make your fried mozzarella sandwiches and serve your soup in a bowl on a plate with the fried mozzarella sandwiches on the plate and garnish with sprigs of fresh basil. You have now created a authentic and very tasty soup and sandwiches that everyone is sure to enjoy.

      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.
