No Funny Stuff, Just Soup :)

This my Darlings is a wonderful soup that I had yesterday at Carrabba's. It was so good that I decided to  make some tonight to take to Christi who isn't feeling well and a neighbor who is down and out. I will make mine vegetarian style but with a tiny bit of the Romano cheese and a tiny bit of bacon for flavor.
Minestrone Soup Like Carrabba's

Start with a basic Mirepoix (diced onions, carrots, garlic minced and celery) they are first sweated in unsalted butter and extra virgin olive oil. Then add green beans, Napa Cabbage and soften.

Then you add soup stock (vegetable or chicken) bay leaves, salt, fresh ground pepper, potatoes, carrots, stewed tomatoes, Italian Parsley and a chunk of Romano cheese. Allow to cook until potatoes and carrots are soft.

Remove the cheese rind and ham bone (if you use one, I didn't) and add cannelloni beans, kidney beans (I accidentally added pinto), and garbanzo beans (all canned with their juices), stir in grated Romano(or not) and serve. I have to tell you that this is one of the best soups that I have made in a long time.

This is from a former chef that worked at Carrabba’s.
