If you have a yard or land where you cultivate flowers and vegetables, you can prepare delicious, fast and easy food. Don’t deprive yourself of the natural pleasures of life because you are sheltering at home (quarantine). We still can enjoy life while taking care of our health and being safe at home.
Nice rendition of a universal theme. You can take this in any direction you want. I’ve always used white beans and skipped the pasta. All kinds of meats can be added.
In the past, I’ve added braised lamb chunks, smoked ham hocks, Italian sausage….all delicious. A salad, a loaf of bread.
This recipe is easy to follow, quick to make and tastes amazing!
