Food for Friday Club
Today was a Busy Day!!! Went to see a friend in the hospital early this morning. Stopped at Sam's Club and found the perfect rugs for my entry hall. SCORE!!! They were having a road show....how lucky was that??!! Home again, unpack the groceries and start on the first recipe for our Food for Friday club.
So here goes... our featured cookbook is
Christmas all through the House by
The cookbook I have chosen is from Gooseberry Patch. Published in 2008. Now don't get hung up on the fact that it is a Christmas book and we are in January. Most of my winter recipes come from Holiday cooking books. I have a special love for the Gooseberry Patch books because I have been featured in several of them. Not this one. They are collection books from cooks all over the world. This one is done by Leisure Arts and is spiral bound and very colorful inside and out.
3 Bean Ravioli Minestrone
Ingredients:1 T olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
3 ( 14 oz) cans chicken broth
9 oz pkg frozen baby lima beans, thawed
16-oz can light red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
16-oz can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
2 (14 1/2 oz) cans diced tomatoes
1 tsp Italian Seasonings
1 t pepper
1/2 tsp salt
7-oz pkg mini cheese ravioli
Shredded Parmesan Cheese
This recipe can easily be vegetarian with the substitution of vegetable broth for the chicken broth. I have made this for friends that are vegetarian and they rave about it!! It makes a lot but gets better with age and freezes pretty well. The pasta may start to break down but it tastes great after freezing.
BON APPETITE!!Hope you enjoy making and eating the soup. Let me know if you try it and what you think!! This recipe makes a lot of soup!!! I am taking mine to a friend's house for dinner before we cheer the OU SOONERS on to VICTORY in the Cotton Bowl !!! Boomer Sooner!!
