‘minestra’ means soup in italian. This italian delicacy refers to a bubbling pot with many ingredients that are simmered into a thick soup. In this version, we’ve retained baked beans and spaghetti- the authentic ingredients and supplemented it with the use of assorted vegetables and spices. It is a good idea to keep the soup boiling on a stove, if you are having a party, and ladling the soup into bowls. Serve with grated cheese and parsley.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, add the onions, french beans, carrots and celery and sauté on a medium flame for 4 to 5 minutes.
- Add 4 cups of water and bayleaf and bring to boil, while stirring once in between.
- Add the tomatoes, potato and cabbage, seasoning cube, salt and spaghetti, mix well and cook on a slow flame for 8 to 10 minutes, or till the spaghetti is cooked.
- Add the baked beans and pepper, mix well and simmer on a slow flame for 2 minutes.
- Serve immediately.
