Notes

Meat substitutions

We like the blend of ground beef and ground Italian sausage; it gives this soup a great depth of flavor! You can substitute all ground beef or all ground Italian sausage if preferred. Make sure the Italian sausage you choose doesn’t have any added sugar.

Vegetable variations

Add some veggies to this soup for extra flavor and nutrition. Finely chopped broccoli, sliced mushrooms, spinach, chopped zucchini, or chopped bell pepper complement this soup well.

Marinara sauce

Check to make sure your marinara sauce doesn’t have any added sugar. We prefer to use Rao’s brand marinara sauce in all of our Italian based recipes.

Drain the grease!

Be sure to drain the grease after your meat has finished cooking in step 3 of this recipe. There’s a lot of fat in ground beef and ground Italian sausage, so if it’s not removed, your soup may taste greasy or oily.
