My Mama’s Italian Soup

Last night, being very typical New England winter weather, I aimed for something hearty, delicious, and comforting. So, Mama’s Italian Soup it was!

This was a childhood favorite, though I would sometimes fight my mom on me eating ground beef! As an adult, I appreciate it even more for how delicious it is. Enjoy!


6 cups of water

6 beef bouillon cubes or 1 cup beef stock

1 cup chopped celery

1 cup chopped onion

Bag of frozen vegs (I like using corn, peas, carrots, green beans, and baby lima beans)

1 can kidney beans (I add this to my mama’s because I LOVE kidney beans)

Large can crushed tomatoes

Salt & Pepper; to taste

Italian seasoning; to taste

Dried basil; to taste

8 ounces of pasta; cooked

1 lb Hamburg


In large pot, cook all ingredients except pasta and Hamburg for 1 hour.

Add pasta and drop Hamburg in by the teaspoonful until cooked. Enjoy!


Good topped with parmesan cheese and enjoyed with Italian Bread
