Italian-Style Hamburger Soup @CanadianBeef

This past week I haven't been feeling really well at all. When I am under the weather as a child my mom would make a "sick" soup this soup consisted of milk, diced tomatoes, and elbow macaroni. As an adult I have grow to love soups especially during our cold winters in Canada. I love my soup more on the lines of stew. I love a hearty soup.

This had me thinking about soups we haven't had in awhile and we just got our meat order in and had plenty of ground beef. I decided to see if I could find Hamburger soup recipe on the Canadian Beef website.

I found a very tasty looking Italian-Style Hamburger Soup recipe but I was lacking a small can of pasta sauce. Hmm... as I looked at my pantry shelf I thought I will just try tomato paste. I also had just over a 1/2 cup of alphabet noodles that I wanted to use up; I used those instead of spaghetti broken.

Italian-Style Hamburger Soup


1lb Extra lean or lean ground beef sirloin or round
1 large onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup (250ml) Each thinly sliced carrot, celery and zucchini
1 1/2 tsp (7ml) dried Italian herb seasoning
1/4 tsp (1 ml)chili pepper flakes (optional)

1/2 cup (125 ml) broken whole wheat spaghetti

Recipe from Canadian Beef 

This turned out really tasty and everyone enjoyed it. It is easy to make and pretty quick for a weekday night. We will have it again soon.

As I write this I dream of going to Eat, Write, Retreat conference in May with Canadian Beef. This post is being submitted for a chance to win a ticket to Eat, Write, Retreat.
