Quick Fix! Spam Minestrone (using Risoni!)

19 May

Spam Minestrone (using Risoni as the pasta)

–> Got back from getting my car fixed. Got new speakers! Wahaha.

Ingredients:

1 cup tomato sauce

1 spam, with about 2 slices cut into strips and crisped up (3-4 tbps), and the rest cubed

1/2 of a white onion, chopped

4 cloves of garlic

2-3 tbps of carrots, diced

3/4 cup risoni

3-4 cups chicken stock

basil, thyme, oregano, rosemary

salt & pepper

Butter

1. In a stockpot/soup pot, add your oil and crisp up your spam. Set aside.

2. In the same pan, add butter and saute onions, garlic and carrots. Saute til onions are translucent.

3. Add your spam. Cook for 3-4 minutes.

4. Add your tomato sauce.

5. Add your stock. Wait til it boils. Season with salt, pepper, and herbs.

6. Add your risoni. Cook as per package instructions.

7. Adjust seasoning. Serve with crispy spam on top with a piece of garlic bread.

* No pictures, as it was all gobbled up. Seriously. The soup was mad great. And people who usually don’t like eating herbs, actually liked it. So kudos to my mad cooking skills. Wahehe.

I would make this again, serve it with a dollop/tablespoon of reduced cream, or a parmessan frico? Wow. ang sarap! Next time!

*Oh and I also balanced the flavors by adding some calamansi and sugar. And finish the damn thing with more butter. Ahahaha.
