Shannon's Soup Recipe (2 Different Versions)
This soup is so good. I'm putting in two versions because I had the right version at my uncle's house, and I made the second version, tweaking it out of necessity. Submitted by Shannon
1 lb breakfast sausage (I used medium flavored, but spicy is good, too) 2 cans beef broth 2 cans diced tomatoes 1 cup water 1 16 oz bag Reames Frozen Egg Noodles (If you can't find the REames brand, any frozen, homestyle type of noodle will do) 1 16 oz bag frozen mixed veggies (I think it had corn, carrots, green beans, and lima beans) 1 can pork & beans (I think it's 14.5 oz or whatever the normal size can is) Fresh grated Parmesan cheese
In a large pot, brown sausage. Drain and add broth, tomatoes and water. Bring to a boil. Add Egg noodles and bring to a boil. Reduce to low. Cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Add frozen veggies and pork & beans. When everything is hot, serve with cheese sprinkled over the top.
Now for my version...
1 lb breakfast sausage (I used medium flavored, but spicy is good, too) 2 cans beef broth 2 cups water 4 beef boullion cubes 3 t Lawry's Seasoned Salt 1 16 oz bag Reames Frozen Egg Noodles 1 can tomato sauce (I grabbed the wrong thing at the market) 1 16 oz bag frozen mixed veggies (corn, carrots, peas, lima beans) 1 16 oz bag frozen okra 1 can pork & beans (I think it's 14.5 oz or whatever the normal size can is) Fresh grated Parmesan cheese
In a large pot, brown sausage. Drain and add broth, water, and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Add Egg noodles and bring to a boil. Add tomato sauce. Stir. Reduce to low heat. Cover and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes. Add frozen veggies and pork & beans. I opted not to get parmesan cheese because it was so expensive, so I just got a French Baguette and we smeared a bit of butter on it and it was great with the soup. And because we had the bread, we didn't need crackers. It was FANTASTIC!
We didn't have quite enough leftovers for everyone the next day, so I added the other can of tomato sauce, 4 more boullion cubes, and another couple cups of water to spread it out a little, and it was fantastic again.
