Minestrone Soup

I love making soup, especially in the winter. There is nothing better than coming home to a warm bowl of soup after a long day of snowboarding. What I love most about soup is that one pot will last all week! This soup is great made both with and without meat/dairy.

2 tbs Olive Oil

1 Large Onion (Chopped)

2 Large Carrots (Chopped)

2-4 Celery Stalks (Chopped)

6+ Cloves of Garlic (Minced) The more the better!

6 oz Bacon (Chopped)(Optional)

6 Chicken Thighs (Optional)

10 oz Spinach (Fresh or Frozen)

1 Large Potato (Cubed)

14 oz Can Diced Tomatoes (1)

2 Rosemary Springs (Fresh)

8-10 Cups of Chicken or Vegetable Broth

1 Parmesan Rind (Shredded Parmesan Works Too)

Half Pound of Pasta (Optional, I Usually Pass)

  • Sauté oil, onions, carrots, celery, garlic, bacon, and chicken thighs, in soup pot, for about 10 min (until onion is translucent).
  • Add spinach and potato and sauté 2 more min. If it begins to stick add a small amount of broth.
  • Add tomato and rosemary and sauté until tomatoes break down.
  • Add the remaining broth and pasta.
  • Once pasta is cooked add parmesan cheese. Continue to stir while adding cheese.
  • Once the cheese is melted you are ready to enjoy!
