Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

Chianti, Verdicchio, and Trebbiano are great choices for Minestrone. Italians know food and they know wine. Trebbiano and Verdicchio are Italian white wines that pair well with fish and white meat, while Chianti is a great Italian red for heavier, bolder dishes. You could try Antinori Badian a Passignano Chianti Classico Gran Selezione. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.6 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 60 dollars per bottle.

Antinori Badia a Passignano Chianti Classico Gran Selezione

The wine, one with an important impact, shows an intense ruby red in its tonality. It is complex on the nose with aromas of red berry fruit, raspberries, blackberries, and ripe cherries in addition to its notes of spice and licorice on the finish. The flavors are ripe and sweet and are sustained by substantial tannins, round and ample in support of the supple and velvety structure. Long and persistent, its tonic acidity is a classic characteristic of the Sangiovese cultivated at the Badia a Passignano.

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a very large pan that has a close fitting lid. Then add the celery, bacon, onion, carrot and garlic. Fry this off for about 5 to 7 minutes until it has softened a little. No colour is needed on the vegetables, so make sure the heat isnt too high that they become brown, but high enough the vegetables sweat and soften.
  2. Add the tomato pure and the thyme leaves, stir through and cook for about 30 seconds.
  3. 3.Add the stock, the tin of tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, and a little salt and pepper. Stir everything through, set the heat so that your soup is on a gentle simmer, cover and cook for about 25 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked al dente.
  4. Add the pasta and cook until the pasta is ready. Follow the timing instructions on the packet, but this is normally about 7 minutes.
  5. Add the cabbage and the beans and cook until the cabbage has wilted. This will take about 5 minutes.
  6. Check for seasoning and add some salt and pepper if needed before serving.
  7. Sprinkle a little parmesan over each bowl of soup.
