I don’t mean to sound so happy about this, but how about this chilling-down-of-the-weather situation" Haaappy dance!
It’s time to bust out the Instant Pots, slow cookers, or big ol’ soup pots again because my favorite season is making its annual appearance. SOUP SEASON!
And this humble, modern-ish minestrone has everything you could probably ever want: veggies, more veggies, one more pile of veggies, basil pesto, yummy tomato sauce, beans, bulgur (we’ll talk this over shortly), fresh parsley, garlic, smoked paprika, and parmesan on top! And crusty bread on the side! Dang, Gina. That is one winter-body-lovin soup. Like, the good kind of winter body. Just… nevermind.

I have a special love connection with this minestrone because my neighbor Pam ( remember Pam" originator of carrot cake cupcakes") makes a minestrone that is kinda like this, only better. Better because 1) it’s always better when someone else makes it. And 2) because actually it IS better. It has bacon. Mine has smoked paprika instead of bacon. I know. WHY DO YOU EVEN FOLLOW ME.
Is it weird that I can still vividly remember the exact first time I ate this minestrone, oh, let’s see, FIFTEEN YEARS AGO" I remember sitting around a superlong table, huddled up with a bunch of neighbors, in a cabin in the Wisconsin woods, and Pam dishing out her Minestrone to the masses after a “long day” where my only job in life was to go snowmobiling and play card games. Honestly, sometimes the food details that live inside my brain are borderline alarming. Is this really why I can’t remember where I put my water bottle this morning" Because this obscure, wonderful memory of Pam’s minestrone and a green can of Parmesan cheese around a cozy cabin the Wisconsin woods is taking up space in the corners of my brain"
Priorities, I guess.

Okay, so Minestrone. Modern minestrone. Without pasta!
…Hello" you still there"
Let me try to defend the – pasta + bulgur decision. First of all, have you ever even had bulgur" Guys. It’s Yum City. Chewy, nutty, wheaty (makes sense, since it is, in fact, wheat). Secondly, nutrition. Think complex carbs, fiber, and protein. I dunno, maybe you’ll feel awesome after you casually eat it in your Instant Pot minestrone" Thirdly, just try it already. If you don’t like it you can go back to pasta like a regular person. Or barley like Pam’s original version. I will allow adaptations.
A few shortcuts to note here:

Instant Pot. There’s a time and place for the healing powers of sautéing garlic and onion, or the smel...
