Entertaining tips:

  • Roasted Brussels Sprouts Minestrone is a great choice for a soup station at your next party; it’s a bit different and unexpected but comforting and delicious.
  • Make it easy to yourself: roast the Brussels sprouts two days before the party, and make the soup a day before the party but don’t add pasta or Brussels sprouts to it. When guests arrive, bring soup to a boil, add pasta and Brussels sprouts, simmer until pasta is cooked through, and the soup is ready to be served.
  • I would suggest to Serve the soup with a crunchy  rustic bread.
