Recipe by NormCooks
READY IN: 50mins




  • Brown and drain your ground beef. Set it aside in a covered bowl until ready to use.
  • Chop your onions, celery, and garlic finely.
  • Slice your tomatoes discarding the end pieces.
  • Lightly spray the bottom of a 5 quart (or larger) stewpot with cooking spray. Saute your onions, celery, and garlic until the celery is fork-tender.
  • Add your chicken broth. If you prefer your soup with a thicker consistency, reduce the amount of chicken broth, or increase the amount of fire roasted tomatoes.
  • Bring to a gentle boil, then add all other ingredients EXCEPT the ground beef. Continue to boil about 5 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to simmer and add your browned ground beef. Omit the groud beef if you want a vegetarian soup.
  • Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Add salt, pepper, and more Italian Seasoning to suit your taste preferences.
  • Serve with a variety of toppings on the side which your guests can add on their own. Shredded Italian cheeses, grated Parmesan Cheese, Chopped Spring Onions, and Seasoned Bread Crumbs work well.
  • Your guests will think you were born in Sicily as they warm up their taste buds with a bowl of your soup.
