  • Minestra
    Recipe contributed by Diane Beufve
    • 2 bunches dandelion
    • 2 bunches escarole
    • 1 bunch chicory-1 small head cabbage
    • 1 rack spareribs
    • 2 bunches swiss chard
    • 2 cups dry italian sausage (sopressata) 1/2 inch thick
    • 2 cups pepperoni 1/2 inch thick
    • 4 smoked ham hocks
    • 1 cup prosciutto chunks
    • 4 each hot and sweet italian sausage
    Thoroughly wash all of the vegetables. Cook all vegetables separately, and place on the side. Add all the meats in a big soup pot, and cover with water and boil for about 1 1/2 hours. When the meat is almost done add all the vegetables and cook for another 15-20 minutes. You can add your favorite cheese on top if you like. This recipe calls for no salt and pepper because meats already have the spices. This is very simple and great for the christmas holidays!! buon appetite!!!
