Make this classic Minestrone soup on a cold autumn day and it will chase the chill away. A bowl of this hearty beef and vegetable soup served with crusty Italian bread makes a satisfying meal for your family. I learned this Minestrone recipe from my mother-in-law. She made this recipe for a very long time, and when I lived in Florida I would visit my mother-in-law and it did not matter what season it was there was always a pot of minestrone soup in the refrigerator, freezer or simmering on the stove. This soup is a classic in every Italian household. It is as popular as the tomato sauce.
In the autumn season I enjoy hearty soups. I will make the soup in the morning and allow it to simmer on the stove all day. That way if anyone comes over I will offer them a bowl of soup. Having the soup on the stove is a good way to warm up, especially if it is a cool or cold fall or winter day. If you enjoy making soup then you will love this recipe. The soup is quick and easy to make, I hope that this recipe will become one of your family favorites.
Note: This recipe was not shared with me immediately; I was married 16 years and lived in another state when my mother-in-law gave me her recipe for classic minestrone soup. I think I got the recipe then only because my husband was sick and she did not have enough time to make fresh soup, pack carefully and ship it overnight.
Here is the recipe....enjoy!
