Old Fashioned Vegetable Soup

I love this recipe! Except for the prep time it's very simple. I give it another 5 stars!! Really we should rename this blog "My Delicious 5 Star Life". Who would take the time to post a recipe that is less than that?


1-1/2 lbs. beef or ham bones with meat
8 cups water
3 stalks celery, chopped
3 large carrots, chopped
2 medium onions, chopped
1 (28 ounce) can tomatoes, undrained and chopped
1 bay leaf
1-1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
2 cups frozen green lima beans
1 cup frozen corn
1 cup frozen green peas
1/2 cup macaroni


Combine first 12 ingredients in a large dutch oven. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour. Add lima beans, corn and peas. Return to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered 15 minutes. Stir in macaroni, and continue to cook for 10 - 12 minutes. Remove bay leaf.

Yield: 3-1/2 quarts
