Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This minestrone is a breeze to whip up. Try it with crusty sourdough bread and Caesar salad.

INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):


  • Cook ground round in a large Dutch oven over medium heat until the meat is browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well, and return meat to pan. Stir in water, stewed tomatoes, and soup mix, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in ditalini and chopped spinach, and simmer for 7 minutes or until the pasta is tender.
