A quick and easy one pot 1950 FARM SOUP.
I would make this by the quarts, and freeze them. If you plan to have it for supper, take a quart from the freezer, set in the refrigerator to thaw while you are in the field.
Your soup will be almost ready when coming in from the field at dark and after parking the tractor.
Be sure to only add the dry pasta the last 10 minutes, to simmer.
Homemade crusty bread with gobs of butter!
YUMMY!! A meal for the Gods!
