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? :)
We loved this soup!!Our dd&dgds came up for a visit and they loved it. Made recipe as stated,I will make again&again,thanks.
Kit we loved this soup, i used garlic salt and as you suggested I made it a day before, didn't bother to measure the ground beef, i think I used more than 1 pound and the soup was really filling, thank you Kit.
Another winner from your kitchen, Kittencal. Used both diced and stewed tomatoes (we like chunky), one can of hot V-8 with water to make the two cups, liberal Italian seasoning and a heavy hand with 'tajin con limon salsa muy picante'. Quick, easy and ever so satisfying! This could easily be frozen sans pasta to add later...which is my intention!
