Hamburger Soup

Serves 6

1 lb. ground beef
1 28oz can stewed tomatoes
1 14oz can tomato soup
1 envelope onion soup mix
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon dried basil
2 cups macaroni
1/2 cup barley
3-4 beef bouillon cubes
2-3 cups water (depending on how thick/thin you want your soup to be)


Brown beef and onion and drain. Add all remaining ingredients except macaroni and simmer about an hour. Stir in macaroni and cook another 10 minutes until pasta is tender. Stir in basil and pepper to taste and serve. *Can also put everything in a crockpot and cook on low for 4 hours, adding cooked pasta at the last hour.*

This is one of those meals that you remember eating on a cool evening and since it's September and the fall weather is approaching, it's the perfect time for this recipe! I like to put mine in the crockpot because it's easier and I love my crockpot! I serve this soup with fresh bread or rolls and we like to dip ours in the warm soup. Quick and easy and delicious. :) You can also stir in other vegetables if you like. I've put in a cup or two of peas and/or carrots and it gives it a heartier texture and you feel like your kiddos are getting more veggies. Bonus!
