Week Night Minestrone Soup Recipe

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
  • Zucchini
  • Carrot
  • Red beans
  • White beans (Cannellini)
  • Pasta (we used penne)
  • Diced tomatoes (in jar)
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • 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!

Bacon and Avocado Egg Sliders Recipe

If you’re like me? You probably wonder what to do with all the hard boiled eggs every Easter. I have a simple recipe that you might solve your problems!

And… it’s not deviled eggs!

These bacon and avocado egg sliders are keto friendly. Plus, they pack a lot of big flavor in a little package!

Here’s all you need:

  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Avocado
  • Bacon
  • Salt and pepper
  • Quantities depend on how much you want to make!

The first step if you don’t have any leftover Easter eggs is to hard boil eggs. Everyone has different ways to doing this.

If you already have eggs made, start with your bacon. I like mine a little crispy, so I keep it on there for a while. Same as with the eggs, I won’t tell anyone how to cook their bacon either!

Next, cut your avocado up. Then mash it.

Usually, I add salt and pepper to the avocado to give it some spice. Make sure no one steals this mixture… like Mila.

When you’re bacon and hard boiled eggs have cooled down. It’s time to assemble these sliders

Then, slice your eggs in half, longways.

They can get a little slippery at this stage. Be careful of which plate you put them on! I’m speaking from experience if you couldn’t tell.

Then spoon avocado on top.

After, break the bacon up in smaller pieces. Then stick it on top of your egg slider.

If you have extra bacon left, you can add more to it too! I usually add one to the bottom to make a little sandwich.

This little bite-sized slider has amazing tastes. I love the saltiness of the bacon and the creaminess of the avocado. Plus, it’s a great mix of textures too.

Honestly, this is one of my favorite ways to eat hard boiled eggs. Mila loves them too!

There’s not a ton of steps to follow and kids can easily help making these. Bacon and avocado egg sliders are really great for the days following Easter.
