The following is not really a recipe, just the contents of my fridge together on one pot. We called it lunch:
1 lb of maple sausage browned
1 small onion, chopped by small boy
1/2 red pepper, chopped by same small boy (other 1/2 eaten by boy)
2 celery stalks chopped, small boy may begin to run out of gas here and Mom may need to finish.
32 oz. box of vegetable broth (finally found a use for that!)
1 14oz can stewed tomatoes (because there's always a stray one in there somewhere...)
1 small can chopped green chili's
2 cups water
2 beef bullion cubes
Bring to a boil.
(about this time, I very skeptically taste tested. To my surprise, it tasted suspiciously like goulash, which my kids love and I never make. So, I tossed in a can of corn and some whole wheat rotini-about 1/2 the box-all I had left, what else would we do with half a box of pasta around here?)
Let simmer 'til you can't wait any longer, then enjoy!
Three thumbs up! Quite an accomplishment around here.
