One Pot Orecchiette Minestrone Soup Recipe

Are you looking for a One-Pot Recipe?  Here is a recipe I think you might like to try out.  An Orecchiette Minestrone Soup Recipe made with fresh vegetables.  One-pot recipes are so easy, you don’t spend too much time in the kitchen. and the best part of all is that you only need one pot!  (I sound like a commercial!!)   ok, well I’m on a roll now so I might as well continue with this is not the traditional Minestrone recipe, I have tweaked it with ingredients that I like to use.   For example, I added leek to give the soup a sweeter taste instead of adding raw onions.   (The rest is on the recipe card below)

But Here’s a tip that you might want to try out in the future.  When I am done chopping my veggies I place them into a bowl of ice-cold water.  I let the veggies sit for a few minutes and then rinse them thoroughly under running water.  Leaving the veggies to sit for a few minutes extracts dirt which then floats to the top.  Rinse under running water.  (I still sound like a commercial, what in the world!!???)

Here’s a bit of interesting information you may or may not know.  There are people who believe that the Orecchietto is shaped similar to a Dome, but others see it as a small Ear?  You’ll find the shot in the recipe card below  What do you think Dome or Ear?    I always thought it looked like a small shaped shell.

Have a good one everyone 🙂
