This came from Taste Of Home, Ground Beef Favorites(one of those monthly supermarket magazines). I also added cooked pasta, to make it even more heartier. Our kids really enjoyed this. Because it calls for bouillon cubes I omitted the salt listed, but that was our personal taste.

I've made this recipe many times. The whole family loves it! I let it simmer in the crockpot all day then add the noodles (precooked) just before serving. Thanks so much for sharing such fabulous recipe!

Delicious soup! I put the cooked ground beef along with other ingredients except the green beans into the crockpot in the morning and let it simmer all day. I also added some minced garlic and some red pepper flakes. I added the frozen green beans 30 min. before serving. I also added a cup of cooked pasta right before serving. I will make this often in the cooler months. Thanks!

VERY versatile. I've made this soup a few times now and put in a variety of vegetables (parsnips, turnips, frozen mixed vegetables, canned corn, etc), even added leftover mac and cheese once, and it has turned out great every time.
