There are more recipes for minestrone soup than there are types of pastas. So why do I recommend this one: Desperation Minestrone Soup Recipe on Food52 ?
Easy. You can take any combination of pantry items and canned or fresh veg and boom you have a soup you can have any time of the day. I also love recipes that can use things up, and this one does that really well.
If you’re a purist, you may not want to call this minestrone. That’s fine. Just call on it when you need a hearty soup that cleans out your crisper and your pantry too.
Food52 has lots of great recipes (and photos). Go there and check them out, if you haven’t already.
