Today is Homemade Soup Day – can you guess what’s for dinner?
Minestrone soup is a favorite around here. This super quick recipe has become a staple during winter months. I can keep all the ingredients on hand (except the spinach- which is optional). And it cooks up quick, which is very important for my busy family. It is a complete meal in one bowl.
Quick Minestrone Soup
Combine first four ingredients in a large pot. Cover. Bring to a simmer, and cook for 8-10 minutes stirring occasionally. Add carrots and spinach. Cook an additional 3 minutes. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
TIPS: Italian diced tomatoes contain garlic, basil and oregano. It is okay to use store bought chicken stock. I did for many years (and occasionally still do). I prefer to use a small pasta in this recipe such as shells or bowtie pasta.
