Classic Minestrone Soup: Dinner for $10
There’s a sweet spot come this time of year. The sweltering days of summer start to give way to cooler days and even cooler nights, and yet all that fresh summer produce is still coming in at the farmers market. Thus, there are some recipes that are just perfect for September, and there may not be a more perfect one than Classic Minestrone Soup.
You’ve got a veritable garden’s worth of fresh veggies here: yellow peppers, zucchini, green beans, tomatoes and fresh basil. Toss in some cannellini beans and pasta, simmer in beef broth, then top it all with a bit of grated Parmesan cheese. With a nice hunk of bread (and maybe a glass of Pinot Grigio), we can’t think of a better way to enjoy the first brisk hints of autumn. And while you may not always be able to make this soup for less than $10, right now, with all the great deals on fresh produce, you most certainly can. This Classic Minestrone Soup yields 6 servings at just $1.62 per serving.
