    1                    Can beef broth
    2                    Cans water
    3       ts           Beef soup base (heaping)
    1 1/2   ts           Italian seasoning OR
      1/2   ts           EACH fresh oregano,
                         Basil, sage, rosemary,
                         And thyme.
   16       oz           Can whole tomatos --broken
                         Into byte sized pieces
    8       oz           Can kidney beans/undrained
    1 1/2   c            Sliced carrots
    1       c            Frozen green beans
    1       c            Frozen lima beans
    1       c            Small seashell macaroni
 
   Brown hamburger, onion, garlic and pepper.  Add rest
   of ingredients except macaroni. cook for at least 20
   min add macaroni and cook until macaroni is done. If
   you can find the fresh herbs use them, I think it
   makes a big difference in the soup.
