Tyler Florence Minestrone

I love the new cookbook Tyler’s Ultimate! Mom got it a few weeks ago and brought it up to me. This is the first recipe I flipped to and new I had to make it. Not only do I love soup – but I love watching Tyler’s show – so how perfect is that!

This took some time and dishes, but the results were yummy!

10 cups chicken broth (next time I’ll use a little less)
5 cloves of garlic (cracked)
2 cups dry small rigatoni
2 carrots – chopped
2 celery stalks – chopped
1 small onion – chopped
2 garlic cloves, grated
olive oil
8 sage leaves
1 stalk rosemary leaves
1 pkg reduced fat pork sausage (this bring so much flavor, much better than turkey sausage would do)
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes – drained
3.5 cans cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
juice of 1/2 lemon

Cook pasta – set aside (cook al dente). Heat stock and garlic cloves – simmering for 15 minutes, discard cloves. Heat oil and heat sage and rosemary for 3 minutes, discard herbs. Cook veggies down for about 4 minutes. Take out. Brown sausage. Add tomatoes and veggies and cook for 5 minutes. Add in beans, lemon juice, pepper, and pasta.

I like the brightness the lemon brings, the little bite to the carrots and pasta and the flavor of the sausage. Soups usually only get better with age! 🙂
