Beef and Tomato Noodle Soup

Is there a better way to spend a Sunday than whipping up a big pot of homemade soup?  Not right now anyway.  The weather is still hovering below zero and the wind is howling!  I declared it a pajama day and while the kids tackled their bedroom messes, I made this Beef and Tomato Noodle Soup for dinner.

My memories are filled with homemade soup.  There's no mistaking it, the way the smell drifts through the entire house with a steamy comforting aroma.  Growing up, my brother and I were fortunate to have our Mom stay home with us.  A pot of homemade soup was often simmering all morning.  To this day when I drop my kids off at Grandma's house she has a pot of soup going for her little daycare kids at lunch.  It takes me right back to the days of running home for lunch, often bringing a school friend or two with me.

Instantly Fresh Herbs

Tonight we're enjoying this Beef and Tomato Noodle Soup, which smells and tastes amazing, perfect for a cold evening!  To cut down on prep time I used quite a few Instantly Fresh herbs.  I love how they're always ready to go when I am.  No rinsing or chopping necessary!   As for the noodles, I seem to always cook way too much so I had those on hand as well.  Soup is a great way to use up partial bags of veggies, pasta or rice at the end of the week. 

This soup can be made in just over an hour in a large pot or a slow cooker for about six hours on low.
