What an easy soup to make! It really hits the spot on a cold chilly day. I really love to make a huge pot of soup and freeze it in individual containers. I like to have lots of soups on hand in the freezer during the colder months.


Sure beats having to cook all day and it's perfect when your feeling a little down and out.


This soup is full of delicious beef and beans, what a great combination. I really like to add barley instead of orzo sometimes. I love barley soup and it gives it a thicker consistency.


Grandma used to make this soup when I was a child and loaded it up with oyster crackers. Oh the fond memories I have of that soup! Now I make it all the time.





One of our favorite hearty soups of all time is this Italian Beef and Bean Soup

Just when you thought you had the best Italian Minestrone then this one comes along to kick it up a notch! This soup is rich with beef broth, tomatoes and delicious beans that are throughout the entire recipes. You can add more or less of whatever you love.

The soup is full of healthy vitamins and just what the doctor ordered for any cooler days in the year. We make it all year long and adjust with vegetables from the garden. We just love to add chunks of fresh zucchini or yellow squash in the addition of all the rest of the yummy ingredients to make the most comforting soup there is out there. This one trumps them all! If you love beef then this Italian beef and bean soup will be perfect for you!
