Minestrone with Sicilian Seasoning

This is another soup recipe with Sicilian Seasoning.  I just can’t help myself.  I love Sicilian so much.  It’s my favorite.  And Minestrone was practically invented for this blend.  The veggies and the seasoned broth with the beans and a little bit of ground beef in the broth…really it’s just the perfect recipe to show off what the Sicilian can do.  For this recipe you will need:

  • 4 Slices Bacon
  • 1 Large Onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped fine
  • ½ lb. Ground Beef
  • 4 Medium Carrots – diced
  • 16 oz Tomato Sauce
  • 28 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 4 Cups Beef Broth
  • 6 Cups Water
  • 1/3 Cup Red Wine
  • 4 Tbs. Sicilian
  • 3 Medium Zucchini diced
  • 2 Cups Fresh Spinach Chopped
  • 1 Cup Pasta
  • 15 oz can Garbanzo Beans
  • 15 oz can Cannellini Beans

Garnish: chopped parsley and grated Parmesan In a stock pot, cook bacon for 5 minutes, add onion, garlic, and beef.  Cook until beef is just done – about 10 minutes. Add carrots, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, broth, water, wine, Sicilian Seasoning and bring to a simmer.  Simmer for 30 minutes.   Add zucchini, spinach, pasta, beans and more water if desired.  Simmer for 15 more minutes or until pasta is just done. Serve hot topped with garnishes. Best,             Victoria
