1 lb (500 g) Extra lean or Lean Ground Beef Sirloin or Round*

1 large onion, chopped

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 cup (250 mL) EACH thinly sliced carrot, celery and zucchini

1 ½ tsp (7 mL) dried Italian herb seasoning

¼ tsp (1 mL) chili pepper flakes (optional)

1 can (28 oz/796 mL) diced tomatoes

1 pkg (900 mL) sodium-reduced chicken broth

1 can (213 mL) tomato sauce

1 cup (250 mL) shredded fresh spinach (optional)

¼ cup (50 mL) chopped fresh parsley (optional)

½ cup (125 mL) broken whole wheat spaghetti


Cook beef, onion, garlic, carrot, celery, zucchini, Italian seasoning and chili pepper flakes in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat for 10 to 15 minutes until meat is thoroughly cooked and any liquid has evaporated.

Add tomatoes, broth and tomato sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Add spinach and parsley; stir in pasta; simmer 10 minutes longer or until pasta is tender.

*Other Options: Lean Ground Chuck, Lean/Extra Lean Ground Beef

Bright Idea: Many hamburger soups start with a base of high-sodium packaged soup mixes, but this simple scratch version uses seasonings, low-sodium broth and canned tomatoes instead. Whole wheat pasta, an abundance of veggies, plus lean beef round out this heart-healthy approach.
Good source of iron (21% DV) and excellent source of zinc (33% D).
