Wednesday's Chow - Sweet Potato Minestrone

Well, Old Man Winter has decided to take up residence, hasn't he?  It's even going FREEZE in Houston three nights in a row!  So, here's yet another soup recipe to help warm things up.  It's from TASTE OF HOME SOUPS Recipe Cards cookbook.  Sweet Potatoes are a really good source of Vitamin A and fiber and Cabbage is has lots of Vitamin C, of all things!

Sweet Potato Minestrone
From Taste of Home


4 cans (14-1/2 oz) beef or vegetable broth
3 cups water
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 medium onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced

6 cups shredded cabbage
7-oz pkg small past shells
2 cups frozen peas


In Dutch oven, combine broth, water, sweet potatoes, onions, garlic and Italian seasoning. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add cabbage, pasta and peas. Return to a boil; cook 8-10 minutes or until pasta and vegetables are tender.

Makes 14 serverings
