Why I Love This Recipe

For the past 40 years or so, the "Venus De Milo" has been one of the top banquet halls in my area. Their clam chowder has won numerous awards at the Schweppes Chowderfest in Newport, R.I, among others. Unfortunately, I don't have that recipe. I do have the recipe for their minestrone soup, which is known throughout New England as "Venus Soup". Enjoy!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 lb ground beef
2 qts water
celery salt (to taste)
1 lb can whole tomatoes
1 6 oz can tomato paste
1 lb bag frozen mixed vegetables
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
2 pkgs onion soup mix
1 cup orzo


In a large pot, combine water, ground beef, onion soup mix, crushed red pepper and celery salt. Bring to a boil, stirring often.Bring heat to low. Add Tomato paste, orzo and frozen vegetable. Once again, bring to a boil stirring frequently so orzo doesn't stick to pan. Turn heat to low. Simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add tomatoes. Stir and serve with garden salad and French or Italian bread.
