Tina's Slow-Cooked Meat Minestrone

Here’s a great recipe for a cold weather day, shared with us by a family member of MTG. Tim, also known as “Tina” (we don’t know why) carries a bit of MTG in his backpack on his annual trip to a cabin in Wisconsin. We’re told he also packs a brew or two (it is Wisconsin, after all). After a long day of trekking, fishing, and sometimes hunting, Tina and his buddies return to a cabin filled with the wonderful, inviting aromas of this slow-cooked dish. You don’t have to go to a cabin in Wisconsin to enjoy this nourishing meal. A crusty roll is a nice complement, too. Try it and tell us what you think. We’ll be sure to pass your comments on to Tina.

Ladle over al dente pasta and sprinkle on freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano.
