One of my families all time favorite soups. The smokiness of the bacon and bean and bacon soup make it a winner! Topped with Parmesan cheese...ooh la la!

How to Make Smokey Minestrone Soup-Annette's

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut bacon into pieces before cooking. I keep it frozen to make this process easier.In large stock pot, brown bacon until almost crisp then add onions, celery, garlic and basil and cook until tender. Drain only some of the bacon grease as you need to but leave some to cook veggies with and to add flavor to the soup.
  2. Stir in bean with bacon soup, beef broth, water, tomatoes, pasta and salt. Bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 15 min or longer.
  4. Add cabbage and zucchini the last 10 min of cooking right before serving. (you want it tender crisp)
  5. Top each bowl with grated Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
  6. ****This soup is good with smoked sausage or spicy ground sausage as well. You could add just about anything you wanted to it if you prefer having meat in your soup.****
