Warm up with my favorite soups!

I am not a soup lover, to be honest.  I do enjoy the comfort of tomato soup and a delicious grilled cheese, but mostly I don't even want soup when I'm sick!  However, I found these two recipes that I LOVE!  Easy to make, filling enough for a meal, and healthy to boot!

I got this recipe from A Pinch of Salt Lake (my favorite recipe book!)
You can add chicken or ham if you want meat!  I also prefer a pasta other than spaghetti, and
of course you can change out the veggies if you don't like all of them!

1/2 c chopped celery
1/2 c shredded cabbage
1/2 c chopped green beans
1 c peeled and chopped tomatoes
1/2 c chopped carrots
1/2 c chopped onions
1/2 c chopped cauliflower
1 16-oz can tomato sauce
4 c water
3 beef bouillon cubes
1 t basil
2 t Worcestershire sauce
1/4 t thyme
1/4 t marjoram
1/4 t oregano
black pepper to taste
8 oz spaghetti pasta, uncooked

Combine all ingredients in a medium stockpot and simmer 30 minutes.  Easy peasy!

I got this recipe from my sister and it is so delicious!

cooked chicken ( I use 3 cans of cooked chicken in a pinch)
2 med potatoes & 2 carrots chopped and peeled

Sautee large onion and a clove of minced garlic on low

squirt a lemon wedge in the soup right before you eat it--YUM!
