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.

Minestrone works really well with Chianti, Verdicchio, and Trebbiano. 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 Villan Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.6 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 36 dollars per bottle.

Antinori Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva

Crafted from 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot, the 2010 Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva is intense ruby red in color with fruit and spice aromas. Light touches from the oak aging underscore the cherry and red berry notes that are typical of the Sangiovese grape. The wine's flavors are harmonious on the palate with tannins that are balanced and ripe. The lingering finish is vibrant with a pleasing minerality, which is typical of Chianti Classico.

Instructions

  1. In a deep sauce pan or pot, heat about 2 tsps of oil or butter. Add bay leaf. When the bay leaf begins to splutter, add finely chopped onions and saute for a couple of mins until the onions are translucent.
  2. In the meanwhile, boil water with a pinch of salt in another pot. Add pasta and cook for about 6 to 7 mins. When done, drain all the water and set the pasta aside.
  3. Add the chopped zucchini and chopped carrots to the sauteed onions. Now, add salt and ground pepper and saute for a couple of mins. Empty the diced tomato cans into the sauce pan now. Add the remaining spices red chilli powder and dried basil to the tomatoes. Cover and let cook for at least 5 mins.
  4. Empty the cannellini beans into a bowl. Rinse under running water to drain out all the canned liquid and add the beans to the sauce pan. Also, add the cooked pasta now. Add about 2 cups of water, cover and let cook for about 15 mins. Give a taste test and adjust salt if needed.
  5. Serve with a hint of grated Parmesan cheese as garnish and some bread to dip into it!
