Soup Creation
A little throw off my Tortellini Soup and Pasta E Fagoli -- but I didn't have everything to make either.

1 pound ground beef or turkey, cooked and crumbled.
1 small onion, diced
2 teaspoons minced garlic
3 stalks celery, diced
1.5 cups of so of diced carrots.

1 large can tomato juice
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can red kidney beans, undrained.

I cooked the meat, then rinsed and drained all the fat off. Return to pot and cook with onion and garlic for 4 minutes. Add remaining ingredients. Let simmer for about 30-45 minutes until vegetables are tender.

In another post, cook small pasta. You can add the pasta directly to the soup pot after cooked, but we always add a scoop to the bowl and ladle the soup over. I don't like it when the pasta absorbs all the liquid when there are leftovers. Yuck.

Serve with Parmesan cheese, and crusty bread for a good meal.

My husband never complains about what he eats, but also very rarely says anything -- but he asked if this was a recipe -- he really liked it. We will definitely throw this together again.
