Comfort food

On a blustery winter evening, is there anything better than a hearty, homemade soup? A little toasted garlic/cheese bread, some nice wine, and we were more than happy to let the winds howl and the snows blow....


What's in it?

1 lb lean sirloin, browned and drained
1 14.5 oz can of fire roasted diced tomatoes
1 14.5 oz can of light red kidney beans
1 16-oz bag frozen mixed veggies (peas, green beans, corn, carrots)
1 11.5 oz can of tomato juice
(1 1-2 cups) of dry small shell pasta, cooked al dente in a 32 oz box of beef stock, then added cooked, to the pot
Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt and black pepper to taste

As the beef browns, boil the beef broth in a separate pot. In the broth, cook the noodles to package directions. Do not drain.

Drain the beef, add the tomatoes and beans (undrained), the frozen veggies, and the tomato juice. Mix in the cooked pasta and all the beef broth. Stir. Season to taste with Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt and black pepper. Serve with a sprinkle of grated cheese and some crusty bread.

  5. You shouldn't show this unless you are willing to share. There are principles of common decency here Val. How can you expect us to view it and not want it!
