Felstead Family Vegetable Soup

Kathy Embry


This recipe has been the basic recipe used in our family for many years. Everyone has put their on twist on it and you can too. Some use bite sized pasta or barley instead of egg noodles. Frozen vegetables instead of canned are just fine.

It can also just be simmered in a crockpot all day, adding the pasta and cabbage in the last hour on high.

It freezes great and tastes even better leftover for a hot lunch!
