Minestrone soup which means “Big Soup” has always been a favourite of mine. It has so many goodies and can be served as a first course or a main meal. There’s no real set recipe as it was usually made to use up available vegetables in poorer times. It can be made as a vegetarian meal with vegetable stock or by using meat stock, this recipe uses chicken stock. You can also add pancetta for a different style flavour. Cook the hardy vegetables first and add the rest last, this will retain some bite. Add the basil leaves at the very end to get the full fresh aromas. Buy yourself the best rustic bread loaf, toast it and lace it with olive oil for a fantastic meal Italiano style.
