#210 I miss minestre – 2

His royal majesty il minestrone

the golden rule is: you can use any vegetable you have, my grandmother’s rule: if you don’t have it, you don’t need it

But for a good minestrone you really need at least, onions, carrots, celery, potatoes, zucchini, spinach, a spoon of tomato sauce or a fresh tomato in the summer. A leaf of cabbage, and some beetroots, even better. A slice of pumpkin when is the season. Peas and beans if you want them.

With or without pasta. Maccheroncini, spaghetti (in little pieces) or pastina

In Tuscany they add cavolo nero and chickpeas

In Liguria they add a spoon of pesto

In Lombardia they use rice instead of pasta
