Hearty Hodgepodge Soup!

2015-10-1 MLC (1)Hearty Hodgepodge Soup Recipe 001

This is one of my all-time favorite soups.  This recipe was my mom’s.  I’ve typed it into my computer and have added my variations, but it always makes me happy to see her original recipe card, and remember her.  I’ve made this enough times that I don’t need to refer to the recipe, but I want to preserve this here for the generations to come.
Here is a typed version, if any of you want to copy and paste it to your recipe files:

Hearty Hodgepodge Soup

In a large pot:
Brown: 2 lbs. Ground Beef
1 large Onion, chopped
1 Garlic, minced, or 1 tsp. dry powder

Add: 3 cans Minestrone Soup (+ 3 cans of water)
1 31 oz. can Pork ‘n Beans
1 can Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
1 can Corn
1 large can of Stewed Tomatoes (or chopped or blended up fresh ones)
2 c. chopped Celery
2 sliced Zucchini or Yellow Crookneck Squash
3 Tblsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 Tblsp. Sugar

Salt and Pepper to taste

Simmer about 20 minutes until the vegetables are cooked.  Add fresh parsley if you like.
You can also add extra noodles or any other veggies you have–throw it all in, you can’t go wrong!
