    MNLisaB's Note:

    When you are in the mood for soup but don't want to cook all day, try this one. It calls for lean beef cubes, carrots, celery,onions and a hint of tomato. Serve it with orzo pasta and topped with grated Italian cheese-very heart warming.

      Just the kind of thing I like. So easy to throw together and I usually have most of the ingredients in the house. I used a can of diced tomoatoes instead of the tomato paste and some of the water. More or less followed the recipe otherwise. Yum. Thanks for sharing. :)
