  • ISO: copycat recipe for Old Spaghetti Factory minestrone soup
    I have at least a dozen minestrone recipes I've made over the years and some are very good but I've never been able to find one quite like the one from this restaurant. My husband loves their minestrone. I'm not sure if the menu items are the same at the US locations as they are here at the Canadian locations as I believe they are separate chains (I think). I have searched the web for different copycat sites but I've looked at several and I'm not having any luck. The biggest difference to me is their broth seems thicker than most I've tried, and the color seems a much deeper red as well. Anyway, if anyone could help I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

    This is the only recipe I have from there and I have well over 1000 copycat recipes. Winnie

    Old Spaghetti Factory Original Clam Sauce

    Source: Old Spaghetti Factory - San Diego Union Tribune, February 16, 1995
    Serving size:
    3 ounces butter
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
    3 stalks celery, finely chopped
    3 tablespoons flour
    2 (6 ounce) cans clams, chopped
    1 quart half-and-half
    1/4 teaspoon ground thyme
    1 teaspoon salt

    Combine butter, garlic, onion and celery in a saucepan. Braise over medium-low heat until tender but not brown. Add the flour, and mix to make a roux.

    Drain clams, reserving juice.

    In a separate saucepan, combine clam juice, half-and-half, thyme and salt. Heat until just below boiling. Add to roux, and cook until sauce thickens. Add clams, stirring gently to mix throughout the sauce.

    Serve over noodles.
