    Pasta Beef Soup w/Savory Cheese Bread

    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    I got these recipes from Taste of Home's Jan/Feb 2005 Quick Cooking magazine. They were so good and so easy. The original recipes are in blue and my changes are in red. I have fixed this soup 6 times since I discovered this recipe. :) :) This is also a very pretty, colorful soup. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

    NOTE: See Breads for Savory Cheese Bread Recipe

    Prep/Total Time: 25 minutes

    List of Ingredients

    1 lb. ground beef (I added a small amount of salt)
    2 cans (14-1/2 oz. each) beef broth (beef broth w/onions)
    1 pkg. (16 oz) Birdseye Pasta Secrets (frozen pasta w/broccoli, corn and carrots in garlic-seasoned sauce)
    1-1/2 c. tomato juice (I like a lot of juice so I add more)
    1 can (14-1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained (Delmonte diced tomatoes w/green pepper, celery, onion. Accidentally bought these and decided I liked them better than the plain tomatoes)
    2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
    1/4 c. shredded Parmesan cheese, optional (didn't add this


    In a large saucepan, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add the broth, frozen pasta with vegetables, tomato juice, tomatoes and Italian seasoning; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Serve with Parmesan cheese, if desired. Yield: 6 (generous)servings.
