Expert Tips

Make this simple soup fun by stirring in pasta such as rotini, radiatore or wagon wheels instead of the egg noodles.

You can brown and drain ground beef, then freeze it in amounts for use in your favorite recipes such as this soup, tacos or casseroles. Just cook the onion in 1 to 2 tablespoons of oil. Thaw beef in the refrigerator or microwave, and stir it in with noodles.

Kids will love this soup when it’s served with fruity gelatin salad along with carrot and celery sticks with ranch dressing to dip them in.
