Recipe of the Day: Minestrone

I ended up with some extra tomatoes from making pizza sauce the other day. Not wanting to waste anything, I decided to make minestone.

1 small onion, diced
1 small potato, diced
2 - 3 cloves garlic
1 can tomatoes
1 can chickpeas
2 - 3 cups stock
1/2 lb pasta
fresh herbs
salt and pepper

Saute the onion in a little oil over medium until soft.

Add the garlic and potatoes, stirring to prevent sticking.

Add the tomatoes,stock and herbs and season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 15 minutes until the potatoes begin to soften.

In a separate pot, cook the pasta in salted water until almost done.

Add the cooked pasta and chickpeas to the soup and cook until heated through.

Serve with grated Parm.
