Dear readers and fellow bloggers:
Good morning. Today we woke up with the firm resolution to start our day like our ancestors had done at dawn in those humble dwellings in the mountains of the Basque Country, Piemonte and Campania: with a peasant’s soup. They had to get ready for an unusually long day ahead, toiling in the fields with almost no breaks, until the sunset. Their devoted wives made sure that they had enough calories in their bodies to fend off exhaustion and bitter cold. They fixed this minestrone with potatoes, veggies, angel hair pasta and shredded cheese. No meat (could not afford it)
Therefore we hit the kitchen and in less than half an hour we prepared this simple dish. It did help that we had some spare broth from a past Sunday’s cooking adventure (remember that potage?) So here it is, for your critique.
Is it thick enough to satisfy your yearning for some comfort food like you grandmother used to prepare you? In that case, please join us at our humble table for a good bowl of it. It is never too early for a good soup. Bon apétit!
Stay distant. Stay safe. Stay beautiful.
What do you think? Please tell us.
Don’t leave me alone.
