Italian Noodle Soup

3-4 cups water

1 (14.5oz) can Italian style diced tomatoes

2-3 green onions, chopped

mixed vegetables, about a handful

2 packages of ramen noodles

1 seasoning packet from the ramen noodles (save the other for another day)

How to Make The Soup

Add the water, Italian diced tomatoes, green onions, vegetables, and ramen noodle seasoning packet to a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, turn the heat down a bit and simmer for a few minutes. Break up the uncooked ramen noodles, if desired, and add to the broth. Simmer until the noodles are done, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle shredded Parmesan cheese on top.

I can't believe how wonderful this turned out! I suppose you could add some warmed up Italian meatballs to the bowel, too. Yum!

1/2 tsp. ground cumin

This recipe is from the 1989 tv show, "Roseanne".

I've been making this chili for over 25 years now.

It's a hearty chili with a little bit of a bite!

It's also one of my "favorite" chili's.

Sandy, what size can of pork & beans do you use in this recipe? Also, do you just use 1 (15 oz.) can of kidney beans, or a larger can?
