    Mambo Chef # 5's Note:

    An delicious peasant Italian stew (Minestre is a somewhat generic term). I learned this originally from my grandmother over 30 years ago and have modified it over the years. My grandmother actually used pig skin, which unless you buy a whole ham and cut the skin off, I'm not sure where to even get pig skin anymore. Anyway, it's remarkably simple to make but surprisingly delicious considering the simplicity. I make it by eye so I have approximated the quantities of all the ingredients below. Eat with crusty bread.

      That was a great way to use some leftover ham we had. Made as instructed except that I used all chicken broth instead of adding water, then added a sprinkle of parmesan to our bowls. YUM! We ended up getting about 8 servings out of this.
