  1. Minestrone

    Minestrone is a thick soup of Italian origin made with vegetables, often with the addition of pasta or rice. Common ingredients include beans, onions, celery, carrots, stock, and tomatoes. There is no set recipe for minestrone, since it is usually made out of whatever vegetables are in season. It can be vegetarian, contain meat, or contain a meat-based broth. Angelo Pellegrini, however, argued that the base of minestrone is bean broth, and that Roman beans "are the beans to use for genuine minestrone". Minestrone is one of the cornerstones of Italian cuisine, and is almost as common as pasta on Italian tables.
