Three Bean Minestrone

It’s soup season, and one of the most satisfying Italian soups is minestrone, which can be made in many ways. This is a recipe which I pieced together after watching various Italian grandmothers make minestrone. A very important tip which I learned from my mother-in-law, is to add a little extra liquid up front, then cook uncovered for 30 minutes to concentrate the flavors.
