EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Add 1/2 lb bulk Italian sausage, crumbled, cooked and drained, with the beans.

Minestrone is a classic dish that uses what the cook has on hand. Consider using up odds and ends of pasta packages instead of the mini lasagna noodles. Just make sure that they cook about the same length of time.
