Instead of opening a can of alphabet soup, why not make some from scratch? Kids of all ages love this traditional soup with a tomato base, ground beef and alphabet pasta. - Sharon Brockman, Appleton, Wisconsin
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 quarts tomato juice
- 1 can (15 ounces) mixed vegetables, undrained
- 1 cup water
- 2 beef bouillon cubes
- 1 cup uncooked alphabet pasta
- Salt and pepper to taste
- In a large saucepan, cook beef and onion over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink; drain. Add tomato juice, vegetables, water and bouillon; bring to a boil. Add pasta. Cook, uncovered, for 6-8 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring frequently. Add salt and pepper. Yield: 11 servings (2-3/4 quarts).

"Very bland, no seasonings. Little flavor other than tomato juice. Needs a larger pasta. Could not even taste the pasta."
