Minestrone Genovese (Milan Minestrone)


The name is confusing - It is Milan minestrone, but from a part of the city that is called Genova (Hotel Genova is still present there). My dear neighbour (Nona Teresa) gave this recipe to me. Best served during the winter, when our bodies need all those vitamins and warmth. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
2 tbs olive oil
1 big onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, pressed
2 big carrots, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
1 cup bacon, diced
1 medium zucchini, diced
1 cup peas
1 can (~ 400 gr)red kidney beans
2-3 tbs tomato paste
1/2 cup small elbow pasta
1/4 cabbage head, shredded
salt, pepper, oregano to taste
1,5-2L water
1 big potato, diced

Method:
Heat the oil in a big pot, fry onion until it starts to change colour, add bacon, carrot and other vegetables. Cook for a few minutes, then pour hot water and add all the spices and tomato paste. When starts boiling add potato and pasta. Cook 10-12 minutes.
Serve with a little of Parmesan on top.
