easy vegetable soup

It was a normal Thursday evening and I needed to make dinner. I had a package of frozen mixed vegetables in the freezer so I quickly googled an easy recipe using the ingredients. I came across this recipe and decided to try it with a few changes and additions of my own. It was super easy, quick to make, and more importantly, my son enjoyed it. Here is the recipe from

1 (29 oz) can of tomato sauce
6 cups of water
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
1 (8 oz) package of dry pasta - optional

Place the spaghetti sauce and water in a large pot over medium high heat.
Bring just to a boil, reduce heat to medium low and add the mixed veggies.
Add the pasta, if desired, and let simmer until heated through or until pasta is done.

Instead of a can of tomato sauce, I used a 26.5 oz can of mushroom spaghetti sauce. Also, before adding any ingredients I browned some onions with olive oil. I wanted to add some seasonings so I added salt, pepper, garlic powder, and some basil...then topped it off with some parmesan cheese. Perfect to eat alone or with some bread. Yummy!
