My goal this year is to try one new recipe a week. With your help I can reach my goal. You see I love having someone tell me, "I just made this great recipe because........" Then I get to hear first hand what they loved about it. Since I hang out with people who are busy like me, have families, with teens, and yet also want to eat healthy I find I want to try that recipe too. After completing my goal this year, I will have at least 52 recipes that are tried and true. Here is one that Lori sent to me. By the way she sent me another that is on my list to make in the coming weeks. Help me reach my goal by sending me recipes. When you send me them also tell me why you loved them. Lori said this recipe was soooooo good especially over the zucchini noodles.
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 pound Italian sausage
- 1 onion, diced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp Italian seasoning
- 1 can diced tomatoes (28 oz)
- 1 jar marinara sauce (25 oz)
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 4-6 medium zucchini, spiralized into noodles
- 1/2 cup mozzarella or shredded parmesan cheese
Brown your meat in a pan along with the onions. When the meat is done add in the garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Add the Italian seasonings, diced tomatoes, marinara sauce, and chicken broth. Simmer for 30 minutes.
While that is cooking spiralize the zucchini. Saute lightly for 2-3 minutes then serve the soup on top. The cheese is optional.
This can also be made in crockpot. Place the first 8 ingredients in a crockpot. Stir to break up the meat. Cook for 6 hours on low then stir in the zucchini noodles. Let sit for 5 minutes and serve.
As you can see I didn't even get a picture of the soup before it was 1/2 gone. Yum. I imagine this soup would be delicious over Vegetable Fettuccini too.
Enjoy good food,
