Jamie's Minestrone

Rating: Unrated
I created this soup after becoming tired of the excess salt and lack of veggies in canned minestrone. I recalled a great bowl of minestrone that was overflowing with rich vegetables at the 'Sheepherder's Inn' in Sacramento, California. Great with a hearty bread, romaine salad and a nice Merlot!

Restaurant-Style Zuppa Toscana

Creamy sausage and potato soup. This recipe is very similar to the one served in a well known restaurant.

Italian Lamb Stew

Rating: Unrated
This lamb stew is a lighter version of more traditional recipes, but still provides the comfort of those heartier stews. It is a great way to make use of those extra vegetables from your garden. Serve with crusty rolls.

Pasta e Fagioli a la Chez Ivano

Rating: Unrated
I have been preparing this magnificent pasta and bean soup, unchanged for over 30 years, and confess that of the very many Pasta e Fagioli I have tasted none even came close to a reasonable comparison to this superb dish Italiano. Garnish with grated Parmesan cheese if desired. Makes many servings and is excellent the next day. Should the soup become too thick it may be thinned with broth. Have many Chicago hard rolls, red wine, baguettes or garlic bread on hand. BUON APPETITO!

Italian Wedding Soup I

Coming from Rhode Island, a very ethnic state, this soup was traditionally served at Italian weddings. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese.

Jackie's Sausage Soup

Rating: Unrated
Easy one pot soup that doesn't take a lot of time but tastes like it did. If you prefer, use rice or some other pasta. Feel free to add other chopped vegetables, such as celery and carrots. Great warmed up the next day.

This is the type of dish I never make the same way twice, but I hope you give this amazing minestrone recipe a try soon, but only once.

Chef John's Italian Sausage Chili

Rating: Unrated

I've added pork to ground beef in chili before, but I've never tried it with all Italian sausage, and I loved the results. We Italian'd this up even more with cannellini beans and a touch of basil, but other than that, it's a fairly classic chili. Garnish with sour cream, avocado, red onion, and basil.
