eMeals: Spaghetti Lover's Soup

I found another great find on - Spaghetti Lover's Soup! I think the thing I like is that the recipes remind me of Sandra Lee that does the Semi-Homemade - they're easy recipes that take something familiar and then add some extras to it - to make it unique. 

Just a reminder - the recipe is for 4-6 can cut down as needed.

First brown up ground beef, carrot, celery, onion, bell pepper and garlic...

The other ingredients are so simple - water, tomatoes, spaghetti sauce, Italian seasoning, sugar and spaghetti (or linguine in my house).

Mix it all in and simmer...

This was really tasty! When you reheat it - it gets very thick and more like goulash. It's just great when you find something unique and easy that actually tastes good!

And one more time to just tell you how great is - it's flexible - you can choose from 9 meal plans - choose how many servings and even choose a store you shop at. then spits out recipes and grocery lists! It's awesome - it makes grocery shopping so much easier and cheaper!
