Friendship Soup

Yum

I hosted Bunco on Sunday night and for one of our dishes I made Friendship Soup. Well, actually, Bob made Friendship Soup. Here's what we did:

I asked each of the 12 Bunco Babes (our group name!) to bring one specific canned good. Then Bob made up the soup using this recipe:

Friendship Soup

1 lb hamburger
1 medium onion, chopped

Brown hamburger, add onion and cook until softened.

Add in 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 can crushed tomatoes, 1 can green beans, 1 can corn, 1 can sliced potatoes, 1 can sliced carrots, 1 can beef broth, 1 can corn, 1 can peas and 1 can of small red kidney beans. Add water as needed. Add 1 t of dried basil, oregano, salt and pepper.

Heat thoroughly. Stir in 1 c pasta (any shape) and cook until pasta is al dente.

Then the soup is shared with your friends! Your friends helped make it and eat it!

  8. Okay, you had me until you threw in the corn. I cannot do meat and corn together in the same pot. Seperately I love it, but just not in the same dish. I know I'm weird.
