Adventures in Cooking: Hamburger Soup

The weather has been a little chilly, even for the beginning of September. I wanted a little warmth in my meal. This soup is soup-er easy to prepare, and is very hearty! Serve with cheese toast.

My Comments

I didn't use any other veggies besides the onion; moose-shaped whole wheat pasta; added some Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper; and a splash of beer. I am definitely going to make this again. Reheats very well!
