Best Minestrone recipe

I ran across this minestrone recipe this morning, and it looks like one of the best ones I've seen. I'll have to put some meat in it for DH, though...
probably some good Italian sausage...and will use chicken broth instead of the vegetable broth.

Hearty Minestrone with Pesto

Connie,
the recipe looks great and I'd use chicken broth too. When I do a minestrone I always add some pesto to it. It just gives it that zing that makes it special..As for meat, the sausage would be nice or even a couple of short ribs with the bone in..The bones help the flavor and make it rich tasting.

Good idea about the short ribs, Kadesma. I'll keep that in mind.

That does look like a good one. I love soups that have everything but the kitchen sink in them!!

I've used up all the pesto I had frozen from the garden this past season, but imagine I could get away with just topping this with a goodly amount of freshly grated parmesan.

Aria - the recipe is on the iVillage site, but it takes a little bit to download. Click on the link again & wait a minute or so. The recipe will come up without you having to type anything in.

You're welcome Aria, but the help certainly isn't due to any genious on my part - lol!!

When the iVillage site came up, I immediately thought it was a popup & was going to delete it, but was momentarily distracted. When I came back, the recipe was there.

Otherwise, I would have been in the same boat you were : ) .
