Pasta Sauce Spaghetti Soup (Crock Pot or Stove Top)

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 0 mins

I made this soup recently it's delicious! You can make this in a crock pot but you will have to brown the meat with veggies firstly in a skillet. Double the recipe if desired. The ground beef can be made ahead of time, if you have freezer-ready ground beef, even easier! Feel free to adjust ALL ingredients to suit taste. You can really use any kind of pasta that you like for this, I prefer spaghetti, for a thicker soup decrease the water.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan, or Dutch oven, cook the ground beef, onion, green pepper, celery, carrot and garlic over medium heat until veggies are tender and meat is no longer pink; drain fat.
  2. Add in water, undrained tomatoes, spaghetti sauce, sugar and seasonings; bring the mixture to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer covered for about 45 minutes (can simmer less time or longer if desired).
  4. Add in the the Parmesan cheese the last 20 minutes of cooking.
  5. Add in the cooked pasta before serving and heat through.
  6. Ladle into serving bowls and sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese if desired).

I am sorry, Kittencal...but this didn't work for us! To me, it was just watered down spaghetti sauce.

Easy to make and I made it lower fat by using ground turkey. I used 1 1/2 C water and it was still pretty thick. Chopped all the veggies in the food processor and used my homemade spag. sauce. Very nice soup for a cold winter night! What kid wouldn't like spaghetti soup? :)
