This is a great "starter" recipe. Using what I had on hand, I used 1 cup chicken broth instead of beef bouillon, 12 oz. tomato sauce (next time will try w/ petite diced tomatoes), 1/2 tsp. diced oregano, 1-1/2 cup frozen green beans, 1/p red bell pepper, 1/2 cup chopped celery. I used oil to brown my meat b/c the meat was extra-lean. After browning the meat I stirred in the garlic, diced carrots, diced potatoes bell pepper, celery and frozen green beans. (If using frozen corn, could toss in now, too). I simmered until veggies were soft. I served with biscuits. Next time I make this I want to try using Italian sausage instead of ground beef.
When a search for ground sausage soup turned up no results that looked tempting today, I changed my criteria to ground beef. Needless to say, instead of the ground beef I used sausage - with most excellent results. But......after a few tastes I decided "more" was needed so I added a can of diced tomatoes, then a bag of frozen mixed vegetables......then some cooked macaroni. Naturally I had to add some more water and let it simmer a bit longer. It turned out to be a delicious "stewy" type of soup that when hot garlic bread was added, will be a family favorite. Thank you so much for the great recipe.
