Minestrone soup made with ground beef, high fiber pasta, and loads of vegetables is a filling and comforting meal.
I don’t know about you, but my holiday diet was seriously lacking in nutritiously prepared fruits and vegetables. What I did have was laden with lots of sugar and/or butter. It’s time for something that will get me back on the right track. My minestrone soup is a great place to start.
Filled with vegetables and high fiber pasta, the soup is satisfying as well as nutritious. I like to use the Dreamfields pasta as it not only has more fiber than regular pasta, but is also low glycemic (makes you feel full longer) and has low amounts of digestible carbs (controls blood sugar). By the way, I don’t get anything for recommending them. I wish! I just like the brand.
This soup is so flexible. You don’t have to use the same vegetables I use. Throw in what you like. Just chop them up small and cook till tender, at least that’s how I like them. If you like your veggies chunky and firm, by all means, have it your way! The idea is to pack the soup with nutrition.
Okay, I’ll stop the healthy talk. I have a feeling some of you are saying, “Blah, blah, blah.” So, how about if I just say that this minestrone soup is flavorful, satisfying, and warms your inside on a cold, wintery day?
So, get the kitchen smelling good by caramelizing and seasoning some meat.
Add all of the goodness...
