This is a recipe that I found on the Dei Fratelli tomato website. I make it quite often in the winter and usually put it in the crockpot after I've put it all together.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown beef and drain fat.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer until all vegetables are tender, approximately 20 to 30 minutes.

Very good soup. I added a cup of frozen mixed veggies to the mix. I had left over rice so I added about a cup of cooked rice instead of the 1/3 cup of uncooked. As stated by a previous reviewer, this is even better the next day. Made for 1~2~3 Hits Tag.

Good soup~ I made mine vegetarian with the use of some Morningstar Ground "burger" (hee hee hee. . .DH will never know) and used veggie bouillon. I also subbed the cup of carrots for a cup of frozen mixed veggies (carrots, corn, peas and green beans). Lastly, I used brown rice, so mine took a little while to get cooked; because of this I had to add some extra water and a small can of tomato sauce, but it was fine. Easy and tasty! Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap May 2009. NOTE: I am back to give it another star. . excellent the second day and even better with bread on the side for dipping.

Very good. I followed the recipe as written other then I used shredded carrots and crushed tomatoes instead of diced. Everyone enjoyed this. This was also quick to make as I had already cooked ground beef in the freezer, so I pulled that and used it in the soup.
