There is a restaurant in nearby Southeastern Massachusetts that has this wonderful soup. They are famous for it. The name of the restaurant is Venus De Milo. I hope you enjoy as much as we do.

How To Make minestrone

  • 1
    Brown ground beef with salt and pepper to taste. Drain. Add brother, water, onion soup and celery. Boil for 20 minutes. Add tomoatoes, vegetables and orzo. (see note below re: orzo).
  • 2
    Boil for 15 minutes. Add worcestershire sauce (optional). May also sprinkle with parmesan cheese on top in individual serving bowls.

    NOTE: orzo - may also be cooked separately - I prefer to cook it separately and spoon desired amount in individual serving bowl. This way the orzo does not absorb all the broth.
