Stuffed Pepper Soup

This is one of our favorites.  It has Italian sausage and ground beef with a load of chopped green peppers, onions, garlic, a quart of my canned stewed tomatoes, and enough stock to thin it to requirements.  A tablespoon or two of tomato paste gives the color a boost.  Make it thicker than typical soups and it is a pretty good pasta sauce.  Good over rice.  I season it with Italian herbs.


Kroger is selling these 14″ pies for $5.  This one started out as a plain cheese.  I added ham, bacon, corned beef, pickled peppers, and more cheese, plus a good sprinkling of oregano and garlic powder.
They sell pizzas with other toppings – they have a pepperoni, an “ultimeat” with three or four different meats, and one with peppers and mushrooms and other such.
