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.

1 lb
ground beef
13 3/4 oz
container of chicken broth ( i prefer low sodium)
1 qt
1 pkg
lipton onion soup mix
stalks of celery-chopped
14 1/2 oz
can stewed tomatoes (chopped up)
1 pkg
frozen mixed vegetables (corn, green beans, peas)
1/2 c
orzo macaroni (see note)
1 Tbsp
worcestershire sauce (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

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).
Boil for 15 minutes. Add worcestershire sauce (optional). May also sprinkle with parmesan cheese on top in individual serving bowls.
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.
