Spaghetti Soup

Spaghetti soup is delicious!  I found the recipe on another blog and I'm so glad she shared it because it has become my new favorite.

Spaghetti Soup

1.5 pounds lean ground beef
1/2 c. each chopped onion, green pepper, carrots
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 1/2 c. water
2 14 oz. cans petite diced tomatoes, undrained
1 jar spaghetti sauce 
1 T. sugar
1/2 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. salt or 1/4 tsp. coarse Kosher salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 oz. dried spaghetti, broken into 2-in. pieces
fresh basil (optional)

Cook ground beef and all veggies over medium-high heat til browned and vegetables are tender.

Add rest of ingredients and bring to boil. Then reduce heat to boil very gently, uncovered, about 12-15 minutes or til pasta is tender.

Serve with a salad and bread.

*I forgot to buy a green pepper last time I made this and John and I both noticed it.  I won't forget next time because it adds GREAT flavor.  I also bought a different kind of spaghetti sauce than normal and it wasn't as good.  I like the Ragu chunky garden adds more veggies and gives it a good flavor.
