Lazy Day Beef & Vegetable Soup

This is one of our favorite Fall/Winter soups. 
It is easy and cooks up in a crock pot. 
This is the time of year I start cooking 
in my crock pot a lot more.


 2 ½ pounds beef stew meat, cut into 3/4-inch pieces

2 (14-ounce) cans ready-to-serve all-natural beef broth

1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1(15-ounce) can seasoned tomato sauce, or one 14 ½-ounce can diced tomatoes with garlic and onion, undrained

1 cup water

1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 cups frozen mixed vegetables, thawed

1 cup dried ditalini or other small pasta


  1. Combine  beef, broth, chickpeas, tomato sauce, water, slat, Italian seasoning and pepper in a 4 to 6-quart slow cooker; mix well. Cover and cook on HIGH for 5 hours or on low for 8 hours.
  2.  Stir in the mixed vegetables and the pasta. Continue cooking, covered, until the beef and pasta are tender. Stir well before serving. Serve with cheese, if desired. 

 Makes 6-8 servings 
I like to freeze any left overs for another time. 

Happy cooking and Enjoy!
