I’ve had enough of Winter already, but since I can’t control Mother Nature, I’m doing the next best thing…making comfort food! This week I tried out a minestrone soup recipe that tasted SO good. The minestrone has tons of veggies, a rich broth, and great flavor, but the addition of sausage really amped up this soup.
Here’s the way it all went down. At the store I was having an unusually difficult time locating Italian sausage, so I went with a spicy turkey sausage instead so it would still have the same texture, and I’m all for adding some spice to a meal whenever I can.
The recipe also calls for orecchiette pasta (which means little ears), but I couldn’t seem to locate that either, so I just picked a fun pasta. So any non-noodle shaped pasta that can fit in a spoon will work great. I must have gone to the store on an off day because they also didn’t have any medium-sized yellow onions, but a white onion worked great (aside from the copious tears that I produced while chopping it up…sheesh!).
Otherwise everything was pretty standard to find. If you have a food processor, you’ll find that does a great job of finely cutting your celery, carrots, and garlic into small pieces. Doing so allows you get them in every bite.
I cannot wait for you to try this recipe. It was so delicious that I promptly texted my mom and sister after the first bite to declare this soup a success. It will no doubt warm you to the core to help you get through this chilly season. Plus it makes a TON of soup and the leftovers are delicious!
