    We disliked it, the texture in particular. Won't make again.

    I was really surprised at how well all the flavors in this minestrone complimented each other. The pancetta really made it delicious. This was my first time using chestnuts and they were really good in this soup. I added the halved cherry tomatoes after I put the soup into the bowls, so they were nice and fresh, instead of cooked. This would be great for a dinner party.

    the perfect soup. the texture of the farro and chestnuts compliment each other perfectly. this converted my roommate into eating brussel sprouts! I'm planning on making this for a fancy 40th bday party dinner this weekend using home made chicken stock.

    Added a little minced ginger, can of Lima beans, white pepper (in addition to black pepper), and extra chicken broth. WOW! Healthy and delicious!
