Recipe by Melanie C.
"This is the classic and authentic Italian minestrone with a green twist. No tomatoes here! You may brown some pancetta or bacon in olive oil before proceeding with the recipe if you wish. I prefer to use a good quality vegetable bouillon to vegetable broth. The taste is more authentic and you simply need to skip the salt."

white onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups
frozen cut green beans
minced fresh rosemary
cooked great Northern beans
minced fresh parsley
grated Parmesan cheese
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
extra-virgin olive oil, or as needed
This was a really nice change from the ordinary tomato based minestrone. I made as written except that I waited until the last five minutes to drop my zucchini in because I like it crisp. The next time I make this I will wait to put the peas and green beans in then too but that is just a personal preference. I find this works better for me when the leftovers are reheated as well. All the veggies hold their bright green color that way. This one is a keeper!
