Fridge Review Recipe 2

Given that it is starting to snow outside - my favorite "clean out the fridge" minestrone recipe is needed. This soup can be doctored for any veggies you may have sitting around the house. Corn, peas, broccoli or zucchini. The bread is also good for mixing in any type of flour or nuts you have ready to be used.

Snowfall Minestrone

1 lb. turkey kilbasa (diced)
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 yellow onion (diced)
1 green pepper (diced)

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1.5 teaspoons fennel seed
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
salt & pepper to taste

28 oz container of chicken broth

3. Simmer the soup for 30-40 minutes.
