Wonderful hearty soup.

Top Review by quikgourmet

This soup is much like the hearty vegetable soup my mother used to make, and she was Italian. We all loved it! I used a 1 lb. chuck blade steak, cut into small pieces, rather than ground beef. I left out the pasta this time, and it was still a fabulous recipe!
