Kid-Friendly Wagon Wheel Soup w/Beef

This recipe is just for the kids! It’s great to get them to help in the kitchen. I tasted this soup and it is definitely a keeper (too bad my camera wasn’t working at the time I made this soup). It has a great source of protein, veggies, beans, and noodles…ha ha. Give it a try, let me know what you think!

Makes: 10 servings (1 cup each)

Here’s what you’ll need:

2 1/4 cups of wagon wheel pasta (uncooked)

1 pound ground beef

1 cup chopped onion

3 cups spaghetti sauce (I prefer Barilla brand sauces-if I don’t make/use my own)

1/2 tsp ground oregano

2 (14 oz) cans of beef broth

1 (15 oz) can kidney beans

salt and pepper (to taste)

Directions:

Cook pasta according to package directions and drain (omit salt). Coat a dutch oven with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat until hot. Add ground beef and onion; cook over medium heat until meat is browned; stirring until it crumbles. Drain and return meat mixture to pan; add cooked pasta and remaining ingredients.

Cook for about 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
