  • 1 Begin by boiling the beans in a pot filled with water until tender. Drain and set this aside.
  • 2 Get a nice casserole ready and make it hot over medium heat. Pour some oil and sauté garlic and onions.
  • 3 Add ham (or bacon), carrots and potatoes and cook for 5 minutes before adding the tomatoes, green beans, and celery and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • 4 Pour about 4 cups of water, tomato sauce, Knorr Beef Broth Cube, and Knorr Liquid Seasoning. Stir then add in the bay leaf and basil leaves. Simmer for about 30 minutes.
  • 5 Gently add in the beans and macaroni noodles and just simmer for 10 minutes more and that’s our soup. The kitchen smells nice because of the wonderful aroma that Minestrone Soup brings. Wait until you dry this dish! You will definitely ask your mom to cook this more often at home.
