There is a restaurant in nearby Southeastern Massachusetts that has this wonderful soup. They are famous for it. The name of the restaurant is Venus De Milo. I hope you enjoy as much as we do.

Ingredients

1 lb
ground beef
13 3/4 oz
container of chicken broth ( i prefer low sodium)
1 qt
water
1 pkg
lipton onion soup mix
2

14 1/2 oz

1/2 c
orzo macaroni (see note)
1 Tbsp
worcestershire sauce (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Brown ground beef with salt and pepper to taste. Drain. Add brother, water, onion soup and celery. Boil for 20 minutes. Add tomoatoes, vegetables and orzo. (see note below re: orzo).
2
Boil for 15 minutes. Add worcestershire sauce (optional). May also sprinkle with parmesan cheese on top in individual serving bowls.
3
NOTE: orzo - may also be cooked separately - I prefer to cook it separately and spoon desired amount in individual serving bowl. This way the orzo does not absorb all the broth.
