Hamburger Soup



              This time of year....I start to crave soups and stews even if there is a heatwave 
        in Southern California. I long for those crisp, cool New England Fall days that I grew
        up with. Autumn is my favorite time of the year....I love sweaters, scarves and boots.
             Get all cozy and make yourself a bowl of pure comfort food. You won't regret it.


                                                                      Hamburger Soup

                     1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
                     1 onion, diced
                     3 carrots, diced
                     3 celery, diced
                     1 box 48 ounce beef broth
                     2 1/2 cups water
                     1 can diced tomatoes
                     2 cups pasta shells
                     1/2 cup frozen peas
                     1 package lipton onion soup mix
                     2 garlic cloves
                     2 bay leaves
                     1 teaspoon thyme
                     salt and lots of pepper
                     1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
                     1 teaspoon italian seasoning

            1) Place ground beef in pan and start to cook. Add onions, celery and carrots.
            Cook for 10 minutes or until beef is browned. Add Lipton soup mix, garlic,
            bay leaves and the rest of spices. Mix well. Add broth, tomatoes and water.
            2) Simmer until veggies are almost done.
            3) Add pasta and cook until al dente and add your peas.
            Serve with crusty bread.

  6. I just made a huge batch of Hamburger soup for my Dad. It's his favorite. He's "batching" it right now because my Mom fell and broke both of her wrists. She's in a rehabilitation facility. I am going to make your recipe when I make the next batch in a couple weeks! Perfect timing! Thanks for sharing.
    The best to you and your sweet family, Val!

  42. I'm literally about to make this recipe in about 10 minutes but I noticed in your directions you added some water...about how much did you add? I'll check back to see if you responded (if you didn't - I'm sure I'll survive! haha) by the time I get to that point in the recipe! Can't wait to try it!!
