any good minestrone recipe would be good. you can cut up veggies the night before. i just made one that involved sweating sliced celery and carrots and one chopped onion in olive oil. after you do that, you add one can tomatoes, one can cannellini beans and cook for 2 minutes. then add 10 cups water or broth and bring to a boil. once it boils, reduce heat and add 2 peeled diced potatoes, 1 cup white wine, one small chopped head raddicchio and some chopped parsley, salt and pepper to taste. cover and simmer one hr. then take off heat and let stand 15 min. add grated parmesan to a bowl and enjoy. it tastes even better the next day so you could make it the day before and just reheat. i prepped the carrots, celery and onion the night before and made a loaf of bread in the breadmaker that day while i was at work using the delay timer.
the soup is from Twelve Months of Monastery Soups.hth! angela
