Tired of those box mixes that you add ground beef to? This is just as fast to make as one of those and so much better tasting! Serve with a lettuce salad and some mixed fruit. Update: 7-31-06 Campbell's does not make the type of soup used in this recipe any more.

This was very good! I was disappointed that I didn't have the garlic and herb tomato soup to use, so instead I "invented" by own version by using regular tomato soup and adding a little garlic powder and a random herb or so. I don't think that I added enough of those two to make a difference, but that is ok! It was still very good! I used mini lasagna noodles (cooked them in water for a minute or so to get them going-which make it so a whole 2 1/4 cups of water was not necessary, probably 1 3/4...) Also, I added a little more veggies because I can never get enough of them! What I made served 6 people perfectly. I love it how it was so easy and colorful! Perhaps the beef could be substituted by chicken? Maybe! Well, I am glad I made it and I am sure I will again in the future! Thanks!
