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

Step-by-Step

  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.
  3. 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.
  4. family tested and approved many times!
