As soon as the weather starts cooling off it’s unofficially declared SOUP SEASON!
Which means just about every week we have soup.
I have always been a HUGE soup lover and my family has followed right along and loves it too. When the kids were younger, I’d just reduce the amount of broth for them so it was less messy.
Now that they are older, it’s not an issue, but if you have little ones that may be helpful so you can be sure mealtime is easy for you.
This is one of these “pound of ground” recipes,
I typically buy a pound of ground something and then come up with some meal to make with it on the day I’ll be making it. Meatloaf, meatballs, meat sauce over pasta and this SOUP!

What pasta to use in this soup recipe
You can use any variety of pasta, elbows, penne, or rotini are all good in this soup as well.
What other flavors can I add to this soup
You can add more garlic for a super garlic-y recipe.
If you’d like the soup on the creamy side add in a 1/2- 1 cup of cream or milk.
If you’d like to thicken the soup ad a slurry of cornstarch and water (2 tablespoons cornstarch to 12 cup water) mixed well and poured into the soup while it’s cooking.
Vegetables, you can add in a few cups of fresh spinach or kale to amp up the greens in this soup.
I hope this recipe makes it into your family’s menu rotation just like mine!

Is it possible to freeze this soup and how do I go about it
Making this soup tomorrow looks very good
Yes, you can freeze this soup. You can freeze it in plastic or glass containers, or plastic bags. Don’t fill all the way to the top as often when things freeze they expand a little, so allow at least 2 inches of space. It’s best consumed within 3 months. I most often freeze soup in 16 oz glass canning jars. I then thaw them in the fridge overnight and heat them up the next day for a meal or put them in a thermos for on the go eating.
Just made this last night. It was very good! Thanks for the tasty recipe. We put some grated parmesan cheese on top! Delicious.
I love how easy it is, tastes delish!
