One of my favorite things growing up was grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. There was something just so warming in this meal that my my family has been eating for decades. Making this the other day reminded me of another Family Heritage meal: Easy Beef Noodle Soup. This classic meal, made with Cucina Antica Spicy Arrabbiata Cooking Sauce offers a warm, hearty flavor that your whole family will love. It is awesome the day it is made and even better the day after! Make a HUGE pot because you are going to want more!
Over the last few months I have discovered the variety of flavors and style of Cucina Antica Cooking Sauces. They are adding a little kick to everything I am making that asks for marinara or tomato sauce. This dish is no different.
Now that you are salivating, let talk Easy Beef Noodle Soup!
- **Adapted from Mantitlement.com**
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons salt
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 jar of spaghetti sauce
- 4 cups of chicken stock
- ½ cup of cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1½ cups pasta, uncooked
- ¼ cup fresh chopped basil, divided
- In a large pot heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic to the pot and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring, until the onion softens. Add the ground beef to the onions, breaking up with a spoon and cook until no longer pink. Add the salt, pepper and oregano to the beef and stir to combine. Pour in the chicken stock and the pasta sauce, stir and bring to a simmer for 10 minutes.
- Whisk in the cream cheese - make sure it is room temperature to avoid lumps - until smooth, then add ½ of the fresh basil. Pour in the pasta (uncooked), stir and let cook for 10 minutes, covered, stirring halfway through cooking.
- Now Let's Eat!
This recipe saves really well, but, if you do plan on saving it, I recommend cooking the pasta separately and just adding it in as you heat it up. I LOVE that the pasta soaks up every bit of the liquid by the next day, but if you want a more soupy texture, do it separately.
Add to this recipe some delicious cornbread or crunch some crackers into it. Curl up and soak up the family memories as you enjoy a warm bowl!
