Italian Vegetable Beef Soup with Orzo

Italian Vegetable Beef Soup with Orzo

div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;"div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;"span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #073763;"Did you ever make a roast for dinner on a Sunday afternoon and wind up with left over meat and vegetables? I do it all of the time. I guess it's the Italian in me that always wants to make sure I have enough food just in case! I also like to call this my "Everything but the kitchen sink" soup since I use up whatever I have laying around in the fridge. If you don't have leftovers, you can use frozen vegetables and go to your local deli counter for a thick slice of store made roast beef. It's so flavorful, hearty and comforting, especially on a cold, rainy day. /spanbr /span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #073763; font-family: inherit;"br //spanbr /a class="ziplist-button add-recipe small" href="http://www.ziplist.com/webkitchen/button/addrecipe?aspartner=carriesexperimentalkitchen" target="blank"img src="http://asset1.ziplist.com/wk/addrecipe-small.png" //a!-- End ZipList button code --/diva href="https://www.pinterest.com/pin/create/button/"img src="//assets.pinterest.com/images/pidgets/pinitfgenrectwhite20.png" //aspan class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #073763; font-family: inherit;"br //spanbr /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-aJNnU7Jfx9M/UI69S3prM8I/AAAAAAAAEsQ/6KQDGazTycs/s1600/Italian+Vegetable+Beef+Soup+with+Orzo-closeup.jpg" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="214" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-aJNnU7Jfx9M/UI69S3prM8I/AAAAAAAAEsQ/6KQDGazTycs/s320/Italian+Vegetable+Beef+Soup+with+Orzo-closeup.jpg" width="320" //a/divspan class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #073763; font-family: inherit;"buItalian Vegetable Beef Soup with Orzo/u/b/spanbr /span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #073763; font-family: inherit;"1 c.
