Italian Vegetable Beef Soup Recipe

Publisher Photo
As a pastor's wife, I never miss a church supper. This vegetable-beef soup is my family's favorite. It's also a big favorite with the First Baptist Church "family" here in Alton! Sometimes, I will stir up a kettleful of soup at our local campground, too—it tastes wonderful indoors or out.

MY REVIEW

"Easily a family favorite and hearty enough to be the main dish. I use black beans instead of kidney beans and leave out the macaroni. I also use french cut green beans."

MY REVIEW

"This recipe is wonderful and easy! I omitted the kidney beans (my family isn't a big fan of kindey beans) and added prepared cheese tortellini on one occasion. Either way, it's delicious!"
