Easy to Follow Recipe




This is one of the recipes that I remember as a kid my mom and grandmom used to regularly make for us. Another simple recipe but delicious and very good for us. This is the type of food that kept us healthy and strong. Something we need to get back to these days.

It can be vegetarian, contain meat, or contain an animal bone-based stock (such as chicken stock). Angelo Pellegrini, however, argued that the base of minestrone is bean broth, and that borlotti beans (also called Roman beans) “are the beans to use for genuine minestrone”.
