Minestrone Romagna Style

Minestrone Romagna Style by John Spottiswood

This is the way minestrone is made in Romagna. It's not a lot of prep time, but you simmer the soup for a long time until all of the vegetable flavors mellow into one mild but delicious soup. The subtle flavors of this soup are even more delicious the next day, so it is a good dish to prepare in advance of guests arriving for a…

Italian Wedding Soup with Turkey Meatballs

Italian Wedding Soup with Turkey Meatballs by Salad Foodie

Italian-American in origin, this soup was really misnamed. “Wedding soup” is a mistranslation of the Italian language for 'minestra maritata', a reference to the fact that greens and meat go well together. (Well that’s a good marriage isn’t it?) I looked at several recipes of this popular soup, selected aspects of a few, added some…

Make Olive Garden’s Delicious Pasta Fagioli at Home by Skinny Kitchen with Nancy Fox

It’s one of the lowest-fat items on the Olive Garden menu, with 2.5 of fat per serving. Our recipe actually contains more calories than theirs does because we’ve added more beans and veggies. The skinny on 1 cup of…

Mediterranean Beef Minestrone Soup

Mediterranean Beef Minestrone Soup by Salad Foodie

This feeds a crowd and then some. Hearty and healthy. Start this slow simmering soup early afternoon to have it ready for dinner, so there's time to develop the flavors. Or better yet, cook a day in advance and let the flavors sing next day. I take time to cut the meat and veggies in small pieces as this is a soup, not a stew, and the…

Grandmother’s Handkerchief & Sausage Soup (Fazzoletto di nonna e la zuppa di salsiccia) by Windle Grissett

A friend of mines mom was making pasta sheets, which I thought was to be for ravioli or manicotti crepes. Turns out she was making something I never heard of "grandmother's handkerchief". I decided to combine this with a soup recipe. Enjoy!!

Five Star Zuppa Tuscana

Five Star Zuppa Tuscana by Chef Doug

If you have ever been to the Olive Garden, you may well have tried this popular favorite. This recipe is spot on. This recipe is actually purportedly the actual Olive Garden original recipe. Who knows for sure. All I know is that it may as well be, and this is a great way to have a little bit of Olive Garden right in your own home.

Many, many, many years ago grasshoppers, when I was young and impressionable, I bought a set of Real Deal Cordon Bleu Dinnerware. The big sized bistro stuff. This was back in the day when it was still made in France. It was also back in the day when I thought I'd never be cooking for more than 6 people. This made the dinnerware…

Soup with sausage, Savoy cabbage, cannellini beans and tortellini by Easy Cook - Laka kuharica

Early spring-time soup wonderful in taste, aroma and ingredients Easy suggestion: you can make the soup ahead, only without tortellini. Cool and refrigerate until needed. Cook tortellini separately, then add to the heated soup.
