Upstate Minestrone Soup
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 1-1/2 hours
Love this soup but make it vegetarian.
We love this soup! I make a double batch and freeze single serving for lunches. Only thing I changed was using hot Italian sausage instead of the sweet ones.
I replaced cabbage with string beans. Was delicious. The sausage made the soup
I make this all the time. I used italian turkey sausage (sweet). EXCELLENT soup. I use red cabbage.
The whole family loved this soup and they are not big soup fans. Next time I would leave out the salt since there's enough sodium in the other ingredients and let people add to their own taste. Very easy and a quick meal!
I am from upstate New York so I had to try this recipe. It is excellent. I have made it 4 times already. I vary it each time with different vegetables that I have on hand. I have used the fire roasted tomatoes and they were great in the soup. I freeze it and take it to work also.
Made some minor changes...used Italian turkey sausage (sweet), beans instead of zucchini because I had fresh green beans on hand. I did not add salt, but did add a dash of Tabasco to add a little zip. The soup was a big hit...will make it often!
Been making this recipe for about 10 years and it the most delicious soup. Whenever I make it for anyone they always exclaim about how good it is. I make it just as the recipe says but add a bit more cabbage as it cooks up and can hardly be seen. Also I add more garlic.
I haven't made this soup-sounds great but no nutrition information. I usually don't make any recipes unless I know the nutrient content. Possible to add nutrition information to all your recipes? Thanks
I have been making this soup since it was originally published, and have at least one container in the freezer at all times for quick suppers. I often add an extra can of beef broth and a pint size container of home frozen tomatoes and 2 cans of beans. Change ingredients to match your tastes. This soup is so delicious and a never fail to please meal.
