BBBBRRRRRRR!!! Soup's on.....

Our low yesterday morning was 4! Thankfully, Bill took Murphy (our Schnauzer) out first thing in the am! I was more than happy to stay inside nursing a hot latte (1/2 hot milk and 1/2 coffee) -one of my "guilty pleasures" learned on our trip to Germany last spring. In Germany they called it "Milch Cafe" or white coffee.... yummy!

Tonite we are predicted to get snow and freezing rain.....sounds like a good day for making a pot of soup or chili! How about trying a new soup recipe?

Hearty Lasagna Soup
Prep: 10 minutes Cook: 25 minutes
Serves: 4
1 lb. ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 tsp. dried parsley flakes
3 1/2 cups Swanson® Beef Broth
1 can (about 14 1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes
1/4 tsp. dried Italian seasoning, crushed
1 1/2 cups uncooked corkscrew-shaped pasta
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Cook the beef, onion, garlic and parsley in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat for 10 minutes or until the beef is well browned, stirring often. Pour off any fat.
Stir the broth, tomatoes and Italian seasoning in the saucepan and heat to a boil.
Stir the pasta in the saucepan. Reduce the heat to medium. Cook for 10 minutes or until the pasta is tender. Stir in the cheese. Serve with additional cheese, if desired.

  1. Gee, Helen, I should be in NC with you! How exciting for the possibility of snow!!! Not so much for the freezing rain though. The soup recipe looks delicious. I think I will make it tomorrow. Stay warm and don't try to get down your driveway after the freezing rain! Hugs, Jill
