Dee-Licious Soup

It is a chilly, winter day outside and we are having soup for dinner tonight. This soup was named by BJ when he was only 3 or 4 years old. It was adapted from a Love Soup in a jar we made for gifts one year. It only takes about an hour to make this soup. Very simple. I make it without meat, but of course you could add some if you like.

1/4 cup beef bouillon granules
1/4 cup dried minced onion
1/2 cup dried split peas
1/4 cup barley
1/2 cup dry lentils
1/4 cup long-grain white rice
1 cup uncooked tri-color spiral pasta

In large kettle, Add all ingredients except pasta to 12 cups water. Let come to a boil and simmer 45 minutes. Add tricolor pasta and simmer 15 minutes more. Serve with your favorite bread or rolls and a tossed salad.

Sounds very good and filling. It would hit the spot on a day like today.
