Minestra Maritata soup recipe

Published in Campania Recipes

This heavy soup is traditionally part of the Easter menu in Naples.

It was a classic peasant dish or 'piatto povero' and was brought over to Campania by the Spanish, the Aragonese to be precise.

This warming winter dish tastes best with vegetables in season and is also known as pignatto grasso.

Make sure the vegetables are boiled just enough to retain a certain crispness.
