It's VERY cold here, so I'm planning to throw together a big pot of soup tonight.
Just thought I'd share my favorite recipe with all of you.

Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :2:00

  • 1 medium onion -- chopped
  • 2 carrots -- sliced
  • 2 celery ribs -- chopped
  • 1 zucchini -- chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic -- minced
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 x 28 ounce can tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons basil
  • 1 teaspoon marjoram
  • 1 x 16-ounce can kidney beans
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 cup pasta
In a large pot, combine onion, carrots, celery, zucchini, garlic, stock, tomatoes, water, red wine, and basil and marjoram.

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered, for 1 hour.
Add beans and cabbage and cook 10 minutes.
