I do love a pot of minestrone. THIS one, is soooo good. As I am writing this, I have decided to add this to my menu for the week ahead. It has cooled down a little on my side of the world, and this is just the comforting bowl of goodness to make it feel like winter is just around the corner but that it is all going to be OK.

It will feed a family, add more pasta if you need to feed hungry teenagers, cue the focaccia or bread and enjoy. To make it vegetarian is completely easy, just omit the bacon and there you have it. Comforting midweek eating. (It will also stay really hot in the Thermomix bowl were you to make it in advance, then pick the kids up from soccer, piano lessons etc.)
