Default Charla's Minestrone

I decided I was so hungry for minestrone and hadn't had it for a long time nor have I made it for forever.

Here's my version. And the good news is that my picky eaters really like it!

Charla's Minestrone

1-2 TBSP coconut oil
1 pkg sweet Italian turkey sausage, casings removed
1 small onion, diced
2 ribs celery, diced
1 small green pepper, diced
1 spicy banana type pepper, diced (I have no idea what it was; someone gave it to me from their garden )
3 carrots, diced
1 clove garlic, minced

Saute the above together until sausage is brown.

Add:
1 qt veggie stock
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can great northern beans, undrained
Season with salt, pepper, granulated onion, granulated garlic, dried basil, dried oregano.

Bring to boil.

Add:
3/4 cup orzo
1 zucchini, diced
2 handfuls green beans, trimmed and cut into 1/2" pieces
1 handful fresh parsley, chopped
1 handful spinach or spinach arugula mix, chopped

Simmer until orzo is tender.

Serve with shredded parmesan cheese on top.

Default Charla's Minestrone

That sounds yummy, and I didn't think I would think that! I only clicked here because I saw ReadingMommy's comment of "It look good..." - I thought that meant there was a picture!

Hmm, do you have a picture? I must be hungry!

ETA: Can I share this recipe with DH?

I didn't even think of getting a picture.

Yes, absolutely you may share the recipe, especially since this is a public forum.
