Hamburger Soup

My husbands aunt and one of the family members that I met first was Betty. She seemed to be the one that many went to when needing a bit of advice or a friend to talk to. She had raised 6 children by herself and had taken in all those that needed a bit of help. She was a hero to many that knew her and friend to many that did not have one. This post is a tribute to the one dish she made often to feed all those that just happened by

Betty Jean Hamburger Soup

1 lb lean hamburger
2/3 cup diced celery
1 bay leaf, crushed
dash of cayenne pepper
1 cup diced onions
1 cup shredded cabbage
1/2 tsp thyme
1 1/2-quarts water
1/2 cup cubed raw potato
8-oz can tomato sauce
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 cup sliced carrots
1/4 cup raw rice
2 beef bouillon cubes

Brown hamburger and onion in Pam sprayed soup pot. Brain off all fat. Add potatoes, carrots, celery, cabbage, water and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil. Add remaining ingredients, except peas. Cover and simmer 50 minutes. Add peas and cook another 5 to 10 minutes. Put into soup bowls and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese. 
A similiar recipe that we often have at our house is very close to this recipe at 

1 lb ground beef, browned
2 onions, large chopped 
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 
1 (16 ounce) bag elbow macaroni 
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes 
1 teaspoon garlic salt (I use Lawry's) 
1/4 teaspoon pepper 
1 teaspoon chili powder 

Saute beef, 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes and 2 onions in large frying pan. Drain excess fat. Lots of onions makes this good. Meanwhile, in another pan cook macaroni in boiling, salted water until tender. Set aside until almost ready to serve. When beef and onions are finished cooking, add the canned, crushed tomatores and approximately 1/2 cup water; also add garlic salt, pepper, chili powder and mix well. Simmer for about 20 minutes; then add cooked macaroni noodles and mix well when ready to serve. If you add the macaroni noodles too soon, they may over cook and get mushy
