I love this soup -- and I grew some gorgeous escarole this summer (Seeds of Italy did me right again). Glad to see you blogging again as well --


Thanks Charlotte, and ditto on the blogging! I just made salad out of the last of my garden escarole (not bad to be eating it in December). . . .


hey try this soup!
Perfect Winter Minestrone

1 Potatoes, chopped small
1 Zucchini, chopped small
1 Head of brocolli, cut small
1 Carrot, large
1 Onion, small
1 - 2 sticks Celery
1 clove Garlic
2 Peeled tomatoes
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
2 cubes Chicken stock
1 bunch Spinach, chopped
2 cups Soup pasta
2 pinches Salt
1 pinch Pepper

Fill a large pot with half water, put it on high. Throw in all chopped vegetables, then all other ingredients (except pasta). Bring the minestrone to the boil, then reduce to a soft, rolling boil for about 30 minutes. Throw in soup pasta, then serve when pasta is cooked. If desired, add some parmesan cheese on top.
