  • 1 lb - 9% Fat Ground Beef (Kirkland)
  • ⅛ Tsp Garlic, minced (more if you love garlic)
  • 4 cups Chicken Broth, less sodium [I used Swanson]
  • 3 cups Pasta Sauce [I used Del Monte Tomato & Basil]
  • 1 Tsp Italian seasonings
  • ⅛ Tsp Crushed Red Pepper
  • 1½ cups Onion, chopped
  • 2 cups Diced Tomatoes, undrained
  • 4 Zucchini, medium, sliced
  • 3 cups Mushrooms, fresh, sliced
  • 6 dry Whole Wheat/Grain Lasagna noodles (break into 1" size; equals 2½ cups dry noodle pieces) [I used Hodgson's Mill Whole Wheat, Whole Grain, Lasagna]
  1. In a nonstick pan, brown the ground beef and garlic until browned and crumbled.
  2. Drain the fat from the mixture through a colander.
  3. Place the drained ground beef into a large pot, uncovered. (I used my Dutch Oven).
  4. Add the remaining ingredients. Bring soup to a boil, stirring frequently.
  5. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.
  6. Serve with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
I used very little garlic in my recipe as garlic and I do not really get along well. Feel free to add more.



This is a recipe I threw together yesterday and it turned out so good I had to share it with all of you.  I love adding Sprouted Rice And Quinoa Blend by TruRoots to the mix as it is healthy and adds thickness to the chili.  This time I also used a dry Tortilla Soup Mix for the seasoning, along with chili seasoning and crushed red pepper flakes.  We loved it.  I served it with Parmesan Muffins.
