Minestrone Recipe

Yesterday I searched on the internet for a new soup recipe.  There are tons of versions of Minestrone.  I gathered the ingredients from each one that I liked and came up with this recipe.  It was really good!


1 lb Italian sausage

1 red bell pepper

1 onion

2 stalks of celery

1/2 a bag of shredded carrots

1 32 oz container of beef broth (you may use vegetable broth also)

1 zucchini

2 cans diced tomatoes with basil and oregano

bow tie pasta

Parmesan cheese

Brown your sausage, chop your veggies, combine all ingredients in a large pot on the stove.  I let it simmer covered for an hour then add the pasta.  Season with salt, pepper and I added a tsp of sugar and some extra Italian seasonings.  Top with Parmesan cheese in your bowl and serve with crackers or French bread.
