Notes

  1. If you don't have ground pork, use ground turkey or ground beef. Any ground meat will taste delicious!
  2. I recommend using no-salt-added diced tomatoes if possible. If you use regular, you may need to adjust the amount of salt added.
  3. Feel free to use any veggies you have on hand.
  4. This soup will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
  5. You can easily freeze this soup. I like to use Souper Cubes (on Amazon) to freeze it in single-serving portions.
How to cook gluten free pasta:
Note, when using gluten free macaroni for this soup recipe, there are some tips to make sure your pasta stays al-dente and doesn't turn to mush. You can follow these steps to keep your pasta from getting mushy:
  • Cook the pasta according to package directions. Every brand of gluten free pasta is made with a variety of ingredients that all seem to need different cook times.
  • Drain the pasta immediately into a colander. When pasta sits in a colander, it continues to cook!
  • Dump the pasta in a bowl of ice water. This halts the cooking process so that your pasta stays firm.
