#Recipe Minestrone Soup



**Recipe and photo owned by Freda's Voice.


Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself. I'm happy to say I did get it, and the hubster says it is just like hers! That's a compliment!! So here is my rendition of my mother-in-law's soup.

1 cup Ditali pasta shells
1/2 large onion, diced
2 tbsp olive oil
1 large garlic clove, minced
2 on-the-vine tomatoes, diced
1 zucchini, diced
3 organic carrots from bunch, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
1/4 head of cabbage, sliced and diced
1 can Cannellini beans, rinsed (white kidney beans)
2 cartons of vegetable stock
1 sprig of thyme
3/4 tbsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 bay leaves

METHOD

Heat the oil in a pot on medium-low heat. 
Add the onion and garlic, saute until golden.
Add tomatoes, stir. Cook 2 minutes.
Add zucchini, stir. Cook 1 minute.
Add carrots, stir. Cook 1 minute.
Add celery, stir. Cook 2 minutes.
Add cabbage, stir. Cook 1 minute.
Add beans, stir. Then add the stock and stir again.

  5. Looks great! Minestrone is one of my favourite soups and your recipe is very like mine, except I don't put zucchini in - my husband doesn't like it - or celery as I'm not keen on that! Sometimes I add sliced leeks.

Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
