I wanted to make a soup my grandchildren would enjoy when I visited them. I saw that alot of the kid's meals on the shelf were canned spaghetti and beeferoni/ravioli type products. So, I thought about making something healthier yet with those tastes. I come up with this.I actually have served this several times for adult meals and it's a great soup to take to anyone shut in for illness and you want to provide a hearty meal for them. Serve with a crusty roll or garlic bread.
In a large soup pot, place olive oil, meats, onion and saute till meat is browned and add mushrooms and continue to saute until vegetables are cooked. Add spices. Add chicken broth and thawed frozen vegetables. Boil until vegetables are tender. Meanwhile in the other pot of boiling water break spaghetti noodles in 1/4's and add to boiling water. Cook until a little over al dente. Drain. In soup pot add spaghetti sauce and italian tomatoes and drained spaghetti,stir to blend. Simmer for just 10 minutes till all flavors blend. Salt and pepper to taste. Stir. Serve in mugs or bowls with parmesan cheese to sprinkle over it and serve with garlic bread or crusty buttered roll.
