Thank you for visiting my blog!

For those of you new to my blog, I thought I should let you know what my mission is. I am working my way through Rachael Ray's 365: No Repeats cookbook. It is my goal over time to prepare all of the recipes in this book. At the pace I am going, it may take me 5 years, but I am practical enough to realize that there is no way that I can cook every single night of the week, as well as purchase all the ingredients for every recipe every night and still keep up the mortgage payments! I hope you are inspired to get into the kitchen and try some new recipes yourself. Your comments are always welcome and I appreciate you stopping by. May the Lord bless you all!

Night 38

Recipe 202
Fall Minestrone
Matt rating ****

Ingredients used:

Pancetta (I used bacon)
Red pepper flakes
Garlic cloves
Portobello mushroom caps
Celery ribs
Salt and pepper
Fresh rosemary
Fresh sage (I didn't have any)
Cannellini beans
Diced tomatoes
Chicken stock
Vegetable stock
Parmigiano cheese
Ditalini pasta
Crusty bread

Matt isn't a really big fan of soup, and I sort of had to talk his rating up. I personally thought this soup was really good. I've never cooked with kale before, but I've had it in soup at the Olive Garden before and I knew I would like it. I'm glad to have plenty left over for lunch tomorrow!
