Winter Minestrone Soup

I’m writing this post as my glass slider is open, and the warm wind is blowing in. Anniston is climbing on my kitchen table, and trying to grab my computer. Trust me, writing a blog has it challenges and it’s Image-65called a toddler. Back to my post, I know I should be grateful for our 80-degree weather we just had this weekend, but I’m not. I’m actually over it.

I want to wear my boots, sweaters, and layers. I crave yummy comfort food, and warm blankets at night when I sleep. I want my husband to wrap his arms around me without me feeling hot and sweaty.

Enough of that, let’s talk food. I’m always looking for easy recipes for my quick dinners, but they also need to be healthy and full of flavor.

I’m always watching the Food Network, and I have my shows. Ina Garten is one of them. Here’s the problem, some of her recipes are complicated and a little on the high side of calories.

Even though I don’t have the calorie count on this recipe, I’m pretty sure it’s not high on the scale.

I got this recipe a few years back, and every time the weather turns cold this soup is brewing on my stove.

Image-64It’s seriously easy, and I got everything at my favorite store Trader Joe’s. You throw it in a pot and let it simmer for an hour or so. Your house will smell yummy, and your bellies will fill up with warmth.

If you live in California, according to the weatherman this morning it’s supposed to turn cold later this week. So on your shopping trip this week, grab the listed ingredients and make this soup.

Trust me, this is not your typical Minestrone Soup. Let’s just say it has pancetta, pesto, and wine. That’s what had me when I saw her make it, and even my kiddos slurp it down.

Here’s your link, and I’m pretty sure you will thank me.
