I made a huge pot of minestrone tonight and it was delicious AND I got it made in about 1 hour after work. I wanted to post what I did more for the next time I make it than anything.
In large pot heat 1 T oil and saute 1 diced onion, garlic, 2 portobello caps, 2 small zucchini. Add 1 can diced tomatoes with flavor, 1 thawed spinach, some corn, 1 large can stock, 4 c water, rosemary, salt and some fingerling tiny potatoes. Heat until potatoes are almost tender and add 1/2 package small pasta and boil 10 min, add 1 can undrained white beans and some browned turkey with seasonings. Makes a lot! and it is super duper flavorful.
