These Fall days are among us and it is starting to get colder, rainy, snowing at places, burrrr. What's better to serve your family on a cold blustery day, but a bowl of homemade soup. Soups usually don't take long to make, they can simmer all day on the stove or in a crock pot., and are very good for you. That leaves all day for quilting!! I make all kinds of different soups, but this is one of our favorites for a damp day.
1 Cup uncooked spiral or shell pasta
32 - 1 to1 1/2 inch round meatballs ( I prefer my own but you can use frozen)
2 Cans (14 1/2 ounces each) Chicken Broth
1 Can (28 ounces) Diced Tomatoes, undrained
1 Can (32 ounces) Mixed Vegetables
1 Can (16 ounces) Kidney or Pinto Beans, rinsed and drained
1 Can (26 1/2 ounces) Delmonte Spaghetti Sauce (plain)
1 Jar (4 1/2 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients in a soup kettle or Dutch oven. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain the pasta and add to your soup. Simmer till heated thoroughly.
The next best thing that goes with your soup is a loaf of homemade bread. I make Honey Wheat Bread, that is our favorite. I put a little molasses on and dip it into my soup broth. uuummm good!
So what do you make on a cold, rainy, snowy day?
Happy Quilting......Have a Great Day!
