My dinner all started with this bread. Honestly, I am from the south and I was raised on biscuits. Biscuits are what I make, not yeast breads. I love yeast breads don't get me wrong, but I am just not good at them. But, I found this recipe here and it is so easy and wonderful. You really need to give it a try.
So I thought we need some good soup to go with this. In my $5.00 dinner mom recipe book there was one for Pasta e Fagioli Soup(I love this soup at Olive Garden). I changed this recipe up so I am going to give you my instructions.
3/4 pound ground beef
2 carrots, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
1 can (15 ounce) diced tomatoes with juice
1 (6 ounce) tomato sauce
1 can red kidney beans drained
2 tablespoons dried Italian seasoning
2 teaspoons garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup elbow macaroni
In a skillet, brown the ground beef and drain the excess fat.
Add the cooked ground beef, chopped carrots, chopped celery, chopped onion,, canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, beans and 2 cups of water to a large stock pot. Stir in the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Cook for about an hour on low heat. Add elbow macaroni and cook for about 30 minutes longer.
Hope you enjoy!
