Italian Garden Soup (Easiest. Soup. Ever.)
When I'm in the mood for soup but don't have a lot of time, I pull this recipe out of my back pocket. Well actually, I pull it out of a 3-ring recipe binder. My Mom clipped this out of a magazine. It really is the easiest soup ever. If you can open a can, you can make this soup. It takes a total of 13 minutes from start to finish. Unless you really can't open a can. Then it might take a little longer. You can find it here at the Del Monte website, where they also have other recipes. Click on the recipe image above to save or print your own copy.
1 can (14.5 oz) Del Monte Italian Beans, drained
1 can (14.5 oz) Del Monte Zucchini with Italian-Style Tomato Sauce
1 can (14.5 oz) Del Monte Peas & Carrots
1 can (14.5 oz) Del Monte Diced Tomatoes with Basil, Garlic and Oregano
1 can (14.5 oz) Chicken or Beef Broth
Combine all ingredients in large pot. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with breadsticks or warm bread. 4-6 Servings.
This recipe is vegetarian, but I have added ground beef to it. All you do is brown 1 LB. of ground beef, drain fat and add to the soup with an additional can of chicken or beef broth.
