Minestrone Soup

A chunky vegetable soup packed with flavor and nutrients. It gets a little smoky depth of flavor from pancetta, but you can make a strictly vegetarian version simply by omitting it.

Ingredients

Recipe Details

  • Yield: 6 Servings
  • Course:
  1. Heat the oil in a large nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add the pancetta and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp, 3-4 minutes. Stir in the onion, garlic, basil, and oregano and cook until somewhat softened, 2-3 minutes. Add the zucchini, carrots, and yellow squash; cook, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes. Pour in the broth and tomato paste, bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low, cover and simmer until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Increase the heat to medium, stir in the kale and pasta, return to a simmer and cook, uncovered, until the pasta is tender, about 9-10 minutes. Stir in the beans and cook until they are heated through, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the salt and pepper. Divide among 6 bowls and top each with 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese.

A soul-satisfying , health-nurturing, thick and chunky vegetable stew that is sure to cure whatever ails you. To keep it strictly vegetarian, leave out the pancetta.
