Re: ~$5 Meal Ideas~

I was trying to throw something together tonight, wanted soup since it's rainy and cool today! It turned out so good, I thought I'd share it here.

Easy Minestrone

4 Carrots, sliced
4 Celery stalks, sliced
onion and garlic (I used dried minced onion and jarred garlic)
1 can or jar spaghetti sauce
2.5ish spaghetti sauce cans of water
1 can Kidney Beans
1 C. dry rice
beef boullion

I cooked the carrots, celery and garlic in a bit of oil in a large stockpot until they were almost soft, then dumped in the spaghetti sauce and water, 2 TBS. Beef boullion, a sprinkle of dried minced onion, the dry rice, and the beans. Simmered for about 30ish minutes.

I only wish I had made some bread today to go with!
