Do not settle for just any hamburger soup recipe ! I promise you, Michele Romano's recipe for Italian hamburger soup is truly the best of the best, the cream of the crop, the pick of the litter...oops, (lol) you get my drift though. I have never had anyone say that they didn't absolutely love it. After watching everyone always go back for seconds and sometimes thirds, I believe them.
I make this soup frequently when family is traveling home from out of town or just coming to visit. A big pot of hamburger soup is always a welcome sight to road weary travelers.
My Italian hamburger soup recipe is full of vegetables making it extremely healthy and very hearty. If you follow the instructions below you will end up with quite a large soup pot so it will go along way. I always make Italian fergosa bread recipe to go along with the soup. The combination is a huge hit! Don't worry, fergosa is very easy to make. You can find out how in the Italian bread section of Michele Romano Recipes.
Note: For a smaller crowd you can always cut recipe in half although it freezes beautifully.

Health Benefits of Vegetables: A diet rich in vegetables lowers blood pressure, reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, and more than likely some cancers. They lower risk of eye and digestion problems and have a mellowing effect on the blood sugar than can help keep your appetite in check.
