Minestrone
1 can tomato paste or sauce
Half cup olive oil
Basil
Oregano
Thyme
Bay
Pepper
Cumin
Red pepper
Garlic
Vegetables such as cauliflower, broccoli, zucchini, potatoes, cabbage, corn, carrots, celery, mushrooms, etc.
Beans such as pinto, northern, lima, green, kidney, etc.
Pasta such as spaghetti, bow tie, tortellini, etc.
I don't tend to use pasta as I'd rather have a slice of warm bread, but since minestrone's "supposed" to have it... I add cumin and red pepper because I like a little bit of kick. Heat until warm through and pasta is cooked. Or toss in a crockpot for several hours. As I discovered with my last batch, DO NOT OVERCOOK! It still tastes great, it's just really mushy.
