I thought I would share a warm comfort recipe today, as it is a freezing -28 out there. We made this yesterday to have in the house as a hearty soup for the next few days to go with our meals. It is one of my families favorites.
I fry a pound of ground beef in the fry pan and drain the fat off then add it to my crock pot. I add a large onion finely chopped and a few carrots finely chopped as well. I add a couple stocks of celery finely chopped.
I add a can of mushrooms, a can of tomato soup, a large can of tomatoes and 6 to 8 cups of water. Salt and pepper to taste(I always add lots) and a little dried basil
I let this cook away all day in the crock pot and about a hour or so before serving I add a cup or little more(depending on how hearty you want it) macaroni.
and that's it.
It even freezes so well,and is even better the next day or 2 or 3........
