#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.



INGREDIENTS

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.
Add thyme leaves, not stalk, salt, pepper and bay leaves. Stir.
Bring to a soft boil then cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes till the vegetables are cooked.
Add pasta noodles and cook 10 minutes more.

Serve with a fresh, warm baguette.

Serves 2-4.

  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.

Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
