"After my son went goose hunting, I had to cook what he brought home. So I got ingredients together and came up with this chunky soup. It's chock-full of pasta and vegetables," relates Loretta Fenrich of Bonney Lake, Washington.


  • 2-1/4 cups cubed uncooked goose
  • 1 pound red potatoes, cubed
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 each medium green, sweet yellow and red peppers, chopped
  • 2 medium carrot, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Italian stewed tomatoes
  • 2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni


  1. In a 5-qt. slow cooker, combine the goose, potatoes, onion, peppers, carrots, water, garlic, basil, salt and pepper. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or until meat is tender.
  2. Stir in tomato sauce and tomatoes; cook 1 hour longer. Just before serving, cook macaroni according to package directions; drain. Stir into the soup.
