helen jane's minestrone

May 2nd, 2012

This soup is so so good. Helen Jane (my meal planning guru) posted it about a month ago and I’ve made it twice since. It was by far the best thing I have ever made on the first try. I think the recipe is just that good. It was so good that I whipped up another pot to share with my friend Lisa’s family as they welcomed home a new baby. Really, its perfect.

Her recipe calls for 6 pieces of bacon but I only used 3 each time. Other than that I followed the instructions to a T, including the parmesean rind – which is listed as an option but I think it adds a lot.

We like lots of kale and lots of parm cheese grated on top.

    Thank you! So needed another meal idea for next week. We are so not a soup family but I would like to be. Will give it the ol’ college try with this recipe!

    He likes the minestrone for dipping but he was scared of the “green noodles” aka cabbage.
