Quick Minestrone Soup

Quick Minestrone Soup created by Chef floWer

I cook this every winter. I've made it as an small entree when I have dinner parties or a main meal for the family. I often get comments about how yummy it is and how filling it is. I leave out the prosciutto as I only eat poultry and seafood. This recipe comes from a book called 'Quick Meals' - The good taste collection, Volume 3 by Anneka Manning

ingredients

directions

  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and prociutto, and cook, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes or until the onion softens and is light golden. Add the potatoes, carrots, zucchini and celery, and cook stirring for 1 minute.
  • Stir in the tomatoes and stock, increase heat to high and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Stir in the pasta and simmer, uncovered, for a further 10 minutes or until the pasta is al dente.
  • Stir in the beans, parsley, salt and pepper. Cook, uncovered, for 1-2 minutes or until the beans are heated through. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Ladle the soup into serving bowls, sprinkle with the parmesan and serve with the crusty bread.
  • VARIATION:

  • Kidney beans and vegetable soup: Replace the prosciutto with 3 bacon rashers. Add 45 grams finely shredded cabbage to the mixture with the tomatoes and stock. Replace the borlotti beans with 1 x 425 grams can red kidney beans. Omit the parmesan and top each bowl of soup with 1 teaspoon prepared pesto.

    Hi, I'm looking for the "borlotti" beans. I could use another bean no problem but is there another name for the bean. Maybe an American name. We have 4 or 5 names for the white bean. The borlotti bean sounds interesting. Thanks in advance for your help !
