Cooking and Entertaining: Giada’s Beef and Cannellini Bean Minestrone Soup

Giada De Laurentiis at the book signing

On Monday I was lucky enough to attend a book signing by Giada De Laurentiis.  She’s adorable, friendly, high energy, and she genuinely seemed to enjoy interacting with her fans.  Meeting her made me think about why I like her recipes-they’re healthy, use fresh ingredients, are pretty easy to prepare and, most importantly, are delicious!

Her Beef and Cannellini Bean Minestrone Soup is a prime example of a classic Giada recipe-light, Italian, and tasty.   Paired with a salad or cooked vegetable, it’s a perfect weeknight meal for Kevin and me!
