Cooking Class Happy Hour

Join us for the second happy hour cooking class, making yummy Minestrone Soup
5 - 6 pm on Thursday, September 24 via zoom.

While traditional minestrone, Italian vegetable soup, is all vegetables, Stephanie Foster will share her favorite quick Minestrone version, which includes Italian sausage but can be made without it. It's a hybrid of fresh and canned ingredients, and it's ready within the hour.

Purchase ingredients for the minestrone recipe (below) ahead of time, and join us in cooking together virtually. Participant are welcome to omit the sausage, or to substitute freshly prepared veggies for the canned garbanzo beans, etc.

This recipe serves 4-6 easily

1 lb ground italian pork sausage
1/4 head cabbage, sliced
1 onion, halved and diced
2 carrots, diced
64 oz beef or vegetable broth
1 can (15.5 oz) corn niblets
1 can (15.5 oz) garbanzo beans (alternately, navy or white beans)
1 can (28 oz) italian stewed tomatoes1 tsp  basil
1 tsp oregano
1 10-inch zucchin, sliced
parmesan cheese

Zoom call details will be sent out the day before to our Portlandia emails list. If you prefer to just watch the class, grab a happy hour beverage and make the recipe another time. That's ok, too! Red wine is a good pairing for minestrone. 😉 And crusty bread.
Let's connect and cook! If you have a favorite recipe, let's set up a simple and fun class. See you in the kitchen! Questions: Stephanie Foster 503-750-8973.
