Where Would You Love To Cook Today?

Isn't this a great kitchen! I don't know where it is from. I pinned it to my board at:
If anyone knows what site it came from please let me know.
I am sure it comes from a wonderful site. Just look at how inviting it is.
Just what to cook....
I am think of stopping over at:
I think it looks like the kitchen of a woman that knows a lot about kitchen tools, such as a pressure cooker.
So lets make: 

Pressure Cooker Minestrone Soup with Basil Pesto

  • 1 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 carrots diced
  • 1 cup celery diced
  • 2 14.5 ounce cans of diced tomato
  • 5 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon salt (plus more to taste)
  • 2 cups digitali pasta, cooked
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 14.5 ounce cans of kidney beans
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 to 4 Tablespoons basil pesto
  1. Select Saute and add the oil to the pressure cooker pot. When oil is hot, add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, carrots and celery. Keep stirring and cook about 5 more minutes.
  2. Add the tomatoes, vegetable stock, bay leaves and salt. Lock lid in place, select High Pressure and 5 minutes cook time and start. When timer beeps, turn off pressure cooker and wait 5 minutes, then do a quick pressure release.
  3. Remove the bay leaves. Add the pasta, spinach and beans. Taste and season with pepper and more salt if needed. Set pressure cooker to Keep Warm setting to hold soup until ready to serve. Stir in the pesto just before serving.

Doesn't this look like the best recipe! You have to stop by and see Barbara's site.It really a great site, So make sure if you love to read recipes you have the time. You'll be there a long time.
