This soup has been a family favorite for years. Funny thing is, I seem to keep losing the recipe and just make it up as I go along. After all, aren't those the best recipes?
1 can diced tomatoes
1 15 oz. can tomato sauce
1 envelope onion soup mix (can use 1/2)
2 cups beef stock
1-10 oz package of frozen mixed vegetables
3/4 cup cooked al dente elbow macaroni
Brown ground beef and season with pepper.
Combine next 5 ingredients in large pot.
Add ground beef.
You may add water if not 'soupy' enough for you.
Simmer for about an hour.
Add cooked macaroni and simmer for another 10 minutes as you don't want them to get soggy.
