The weather is very cold, and I love making homemade soups. When I can make them frugal, that's even better. This one is made from a half of a stuffed meatloaf I froze, from a recipe I posted recently. Lots of great flavors went into the meatloaf and this soup, but you can still make this soup with any meats you have in the freezer.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 frozen meatloaf or you can use either ground beef or sausage meat (1 pound)
  • 1 bag frozen diced onion & peppers ($.99)
  • 2 cartons chicken broth ($2.00)
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 bag (16 oz) whole leaf spinach ($1.99)
  • 2 cans stewed tomatoes ($1.98)
  • 1 can dark red kidney beans (store brand) ($.69)
  • 1/2 cup Orzo macaroni ($1.00)
  • seasonings to taste; season salt, black pepper, basil, old bay seasoning, garlic powder or minced, sugar, thyme, rosemary, and bay leaves. Start with a 1/4 teaspoon...let it simmer, do a test taste for adjusting the flavors.
  • shredded Parmesan or mozzarella cheese

Steps:

  1. Using frozen cooked meat or any meat, break it up into small bits and cook it up in the bottom of your soup pot. Add the bag of onions & peppers.

  3. Fill with chicken broth and water.
  4. Add tomatoes, spinach, beans, pasta and seasonings.
  5. Bring this to a boil, then drop down to a medium simmer for at least an hour and a half. Test taste for seasonings.
  6. When ready to serve, put in a soup bowl and add a handful of shredded parmesan or mozzarella cheese on top. Great with garlic toast and a salad.
