1 lb Hamburger—Substitute 1 pkg. Morning Star "Burger Crumbles"
1 lg. Chopped onion
1 cloves garlic, or equivalent of garlic powder
1 can HEALTY CHOICE Minestrone Soup-undiluted
1 cans diced tomatoes
1 can ROTEL "milder" tomatoes
1 can (lg.) Ranch Style beans—I use any FAT FREE beans
(red, black, pinto, etc.)
This is almost identical to the soup served at the OLIVE GARDEN restaurant called Pasta Fagoli.
Spray pot with FAT FREE oil, brown onion (and meat if used). Then DUMP in the remaining ingredients. Bring to boil, then simmer for 30-45 minutes. This makes a large amount. Freezes well.
