“I made this soup recently it's delicious! You can make this in a crock pot but you will have to brown the meat with veggies firstly in a skillet. Double the recipe if desired. The ground beef can be made ahead of time, if you have freezer-ready ground beef, even easier! Feel free to adjust ALL ingredients to suit taste. You can really use any kind of pasta that you like for this, I prefer spaghetti, for a thicker soup decrease the water.”
