Pepperoni Pizza Soup
This. Is. Amazing!
I cannot take full credit. I am a Rachel Ray addict and have loved her for years. She made a version of this and I just jacked it up with my own personal touch! Once joining Trim Healthy Mama, I thought I'd never be with my friend again. Nah! THM is totally adaptable and I have had no problem making my own adjustments to make her meals figure friendly.
Speaking of figure... that lady eats a ton of pasta and she has (in respect) put quite a bit of weight on. I choose not to go down that road. I love me some pasta, but... I love my tiny figure better!
Dreamfield Pasta is allowed once per week.
Miracle Noodles are FAB-U-LOUS!
I love making my own noodles out of zucchini with my spiralizer
So see! There are plenty of options for pasta. I do not miss the full belly after a heavy, pasta ladened meal! Those days are gone!
6 cups of stock (chicken, veggie or beef)
1 cup of sliced or diced pepperoni
1 Tablespoon of dried oregano
1 can of tomatoes (I love the organic fire roasted from Publix)
8oz of tomato sauce
a heavy sprinkle of onion and garlic powder
Your pasta of choice
***Here is used sliced portabella mushrooms, roasted red peppers (from the jar), onions, spinach
Some other ideas could be zucchini, green peppers...really anything! :)
Throw everything except the pasta and cheese in the crock pot. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 6. When you're ready to eat go ahead and cook your Dreamfield, drain your Miracle Noodles or spiralize your zucchini. You could make a whole box of Dream Field and throw into your crock pot if your family digs it. But, it would be hard to portion out and if you're hardcore into loosing weight, you may eat too much pasta! I chose to make my Dreamfield, drain and put into a bowl and then flood with my soup. Add a nice handful of parmesan and enjoy!
