Let me start by saying that this was so good we are having the leftovers tomorrow night. The recipe is from Lidia’s Italy. My mom use to make Minestra when I was a kid. The difference in her recipe, which of course I do not have written down, was that I do not remember her adding tomato to the base.
The squash was from my sister’s garden. It was very large. When I tried to weigh it whole I kept getting an error message!
