Looking to warm up on a chilly week night? This Minestrone Soup takes a little love, but worth every bite.
Whoever you’re making this delicious meal for, they’ll be sure to love it: especially you!
My favorite soup ay Olive Garden is their minestrone soup. It’s filled with fresh veggies and the broth is always spot on. I knew I had to try to make it at home.
Since I was recently gifted beef broth from Kettle and Fire, it felt like my sign to go get the other ingredients too. Kettle and Fire‘s broth was so easy to work with, tasted amazing, and has all whole food ingredients without any artificial flavors, hormones, or additives. All things I feel 100% happy with giving Mila.
Again, I took a TON of videos and not a lot of pictures. Thankfully the pictures I did get make it look as yummy as it tasted! You can see the video down below.
Here’s the other ingredients you’ll need for this Week Night Minestrone Soup:
- Kettle and Fire Bone Broth
- Red beans
- White beans (Cannellini)
- Pasta (we used penne)
- Diced tomatoes (in jar)
- Salt and Pepper
- Italian Seasoning
First, chop up your vegetables and open the can to the tomatoes.
Then, heat olive oil in a pan and soften the onions and carrots (if you have celery, you’d add it here too). Once they’re translucent, add in garlic for a minute.
Next, add in the broth, a few cups of water, and the tomatoes. Bring this to a boil. Then turn down the heat. Let the broth simmer for an hour.
After the hour is up, add in the zucchini, beans, seasoning., and pasta to the pot. I also added two more cups of water too. The pasta soaks up all the juices and I like the broth!
Cook until the pasta is ready.
Once your noodles are all cooked, take the pot off the heat. Now it’s time to enjoy your soup.
I topped my soup off with parmesan cheese, just like they do at Olive Garden. You can always make bread sticks to enjoy with your soup as well.
We had salad to accompany our soup and it was a nice little meal. Since it’s been so cold, we love warming up with soup.
I know you’d love it too!
