Hamburger Soup

This soup looks so delicious. My friend Michelle sent this to me today. They are currently covered in snow and ice. I love a crock pot full of hot soup on cold days.

Update - I made this soup for the first time in June 2011. It was so good. The family loved it. And keep in mind that you can put in whatever you want to - the soup cannot be messed up.

Ingredients1 lb extra lean ground beef or turkey, browned
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp seasoned salt
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
3 c hot water
8-oz can tomato sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 c carrots, diced
1 c celery, sliced
1 c macaroni, cooked
Parmesan cheese

Combine all ingredients except macaroni & Parmesan cheese in crock pot. Cook on low 6-8 hours. Turn to high. Add macaroni and Parmesan cheese. Cook for another 15-20 minutes.

Freezer Directions
Make as directed, except for the pasta. Freeze in meal sizes or individual portions. To serve, thaw and reheat in microwave or in the crockpot.  Add cooked pasta when ready to serve.
