Take one tin of diced tomatoes, 1 tin of five bean mix, 2 sticks of celery & one medium onion - dice these finely, 1 cup of chicken stock and one cup of penne pasta along with 1 litre of water. Put them all into a large saucepan, bring to the boil and reduce to a simmer for one hour stirring occasionally to end up with a lovely big bowl of hot steaming minestrone soup.
....enough for 4 generous serves. Serve with a bread roll or hot buttered toast with a smear of Vegemite. Delicious. It makes a lovely lunch on a cold day. Seeing that the wind is blowing and the temperature dropped I am going to make a pot of soup this morning.
Pls note that I am not advertising any product.....they just happen to be what I had in my pantry on the day.
While my soup is simmering I am going to put a zipper in a pinafore that I am making for bub. Zippers and I are not friends. I will let you know how I go and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
