Bleak Weather Buster

Is the gray, chilly weather getting to your household? That's what we get in the northern hemisphere this time of year. Maybe a hearty, healthy soup can shake off the weather malaise.

This easy soup – stew will add a great aroma to the house as it simmers. It is chock full of good stuff to help fight off the colds that are circulating this time of year. All this and it tastes great!


  • 1 lbs Bratwurst
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 pkg fresh spinach
  • 1 pkg frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes, un-drained
  • 4 cups beef stock low sodium

  • ½ cup uncooked elbow macaroni


Do you cutting: chop the onion, cut the brats into 1-2 inch pieces, Cut stems off spinach.

In a dutch oven cook the bratwurst pieces with onions over medium heat until no longer pink (about 8 minutes) stirring often; remove the brats to paper towels & drain. 

Into the pot, mix the un-drained stewed tomatoes. Add the spinach by a handful at a time, stirring to wilt down.

Return the brat pieces and add the beef stock, lower the heat to a slight simmer.

While that cooks, fix the pasta according to directions for “al dente” (lowest amount of time). Drain.

Stir in the frozen mixed vegetables and the cooked pasta. Return to a simmer for about 20 minutes.

Since you have time, warm some bread in the oven to make this meal!

For our music:

This should bust the gloomy skies!
