Denver-Pagliacci's Minestrone

With this change in the weather, I'm craving Minestrone. I've done a quick couple of searches on this site as well as more broadly on the internet for the now closed Pagliacci's recipe, to no avail. Any input or suggestions? I would love to have the original recipe or even an approximation.

  1. Well now I'm glad I moved out of town! I can't picture North Denver without the Pagliacci's sign or that tureen of minestrone. But I guess I also said I couldn't picture Denver without Little Pepina's.. and without the viaducts.. and without etc.. Time marches on and leaves no prisoners!

    As far as their soup.. I'm no help but I'll be watching this thread to see if someone has insight. I know the base tasted to me to be pretty tomato-y. Ground pork, green beans(?), cannelini, kidney beans, canned tomatoes, parsley, celery,carrots,onion. Probably something from the cabbage family. .. did they stretch theirs with pasta? I don't think so.. but perhaps I don't remember correctly.
