This is one of my favorite soups to make. You'll have leftovers for days and it's full of yummy healthy ingredients!
(you can half or quarter as you like)
1/2 lb. italian sausage
1/2 lb. ground beef
1.5 tsp of salt (or not, since everything else is so salty
1.5 c. chopped onion (I usually omit this and it's fine...but if you like onions...)
1.5 c. carrots
6 cloves minced garlic (that is sooo much. I either do a clove or two or sprinkle some power on there)
brown sausage/beef with salt. add carrots and onions. saute for 3 minutes. add garlic, saute for 3 more. set aside.
7 tsp chicken soup base (I use a cube of two of boullion)
7 c. water
3 c. of canned diced tomatoes (a can or two, depending how much you like tomatoes)
1.5 c. marinara sauce
1/2 tsp oregano, tyme, basil, parsley
combine all in soup pot. add first section, boil until carrots are tender.
still boiling, add egg noodle pasta (original recipe calls for .24 lb...or 3.84 oz. Unless you cook like that, I just add noodles until I feel like there is enough). simmer for 10 minutes.
enjoy with parmesan and/or mazarella cheese.
