This is one of our favorite soups at our house !
1 pd ground beef
1/2 pd bulk Italian sausage
1 sm diced onion
2 c small pasta
1 28 oz can tomato soup
6 tbls grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 c water
1 sm tub small curd cottage cheese
1 tbls Italian seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
1 c diced canned tomatoes undrained
In a large stock pot brown the beef and sausage and onion. Drain the grease. In a separate pot cook the pasta according to directions on its package. Drain and add to stock pot with the beef mixture in it. Add the remaining ingredients and cook until heated through. I like to serve with some grated Parmesan cheese on top and some yummy croutons ...
You can also make this in the crokpot just brown and drain meats and than put everything into the slow cooker and cook on low 6-7 hours. Add the cooked pasta the last hour.
