  • 1 lb. of ground meat
  • 2 cans Veg-All mixed vegetables, large chunk
  • 2 or 3 cans Campbell’s Beefy Mushroom Soup
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • Chopped garlic to taste
  • Any kind of dry noodles or macaroni (optional)
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Brown meat with diced onions & garlic, season with salt & pepper.
  2. Add canned veggies and the soup and some water. You want the consistency at this point to be just about what you would expect a “cooked-down” stew to be, but as you’re using the canned veggies there is no need to cook longer to reduce the liquid.
  3. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer for 15-20 minutes. Add noodles or macaroni and cook just 3-5 minutes more- just till pasta is beginning to soften, not completely cooked. you want the pasta to be very al dente because it continues to soften. Remove from heat and serve.
