Busy Day Soup
Busy Day Soup
Also called "Lazy" Day Soup this soup has just 5 ingredients. Not counting the water. It could not be simpler.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 packet onion soup mix
  • 1 3/4 cup mixed frozen vegetables
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 28oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup macaroni, uncooked


  1. In a large soup pot, brown ground beef. Drain fat.
  2. Pour in water, onion soup mix and tomatoes with juice. Simmer for 1 hour on medium low.
  3. Add macaroni and frozen vegetables. Cook 15 minutes longer on medium heat. Serve hot.


  • Add whatever seasonings you like.  I added Thyme, Oregano, Rosemary, Basil, fresh Garlic, Crushed Red Pepper, Slap Yo Mama, Salt and Pepper.
  • Add whatever frozen vegetables you want.  A 10 oz bag is 2 cups.  This calls for 1 3/4 cups.  Just put the whole bag in.  Don't waste that quarter cup.
  • I used Mild Italian Sausage instead of Beef.  I can't eat beef.  So use whatever you want.  Just make sure it is 1 pound (or so if you want a little more meat).
