Hamburger Minestrone Soup is a spicy version of Minestrone with ground beef. I call it a “can-opener soup” since the recipe calls for 7 cans including 3 cans of Campbell’s canned minestrone soup.
I’m not too proud to admit that preparing this recipe is going to require a can opener. Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be.
Anybody who will eat chopped romaine lettuce stored in a vacuum-packed Mason jar every day for lunch obviously doesn’t need gourmet food at every meal.
Typically, I prefer to throw something together at home rather than eat out, even if it’s not fresh and/or fancy. Yes, I know. Canned beans, canned vegetables, and condensed soups often contain too much sodium. On the other hand, they usually have fewer calories and more nutrition than food from the local drive-thru.
Thanks to my friend Joan who gave me this recipe for Minestrone Soup with Ground Beef. It is a cool-weather staple at our house and the perfect candidate for my new “Super Simple Suppers” category.
What should I serve with this recipe?
Can I freeze this “Ground Beef Minestrone Soup?”
All the ingredients can be stored in the pantry and/or freezer, making it easy to keep on hand. If your family is small, you could eat it for days. Thankfully, it freezes well, so you have that option, too.
