Roasted Red Potato and Green Bean Beef Soup

I always love a good soup recipe and especially if they are easy to fix. This one fits both categories. I found this recipe on a blog I read called Siggy Spice and you can find it here. I actually added my own touch to the recipe by changing the Hamburger Helper I used as well as adding a can of cannellini beans. Now all we need is the cold weather so we can eat soup!

Roasted Red Potato and Green Bean Beef Soup

1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 package Hamburger Helper Italian Lasagna
5 cups water
1 bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 16oz can diced tomatoes
1 package frozen Birds Eye Roasted Red Potatoes and Green Beans
1 can cannellini beans

Cook and stir ground beef and onion in a Dutch oven until beef is brown; drain. Stir in sauce mix from Hamburger Helper package. Add water, bay leaf, salt, pepper and tomatoes. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; cover and simmer, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes. Stir in vegetables, beans and noodles; cover and cook an additional 10 minutes or until noodles are done. Serves 6 - 8.

Serve with crusty bread and a salad for a complete meal.
