This is a hearty all-in-one-meal soup which contains vegetables, meat, and pasta. Served with mozzarella-garlic bread, makes a great meal on a cold winter day. This is a variation of a soup made with beef. I like venison because it is non-fat. Garnish with your favorite cheese.

First let me state that I have never liked the taste of venison. With that said, this was a wonderful recipe. I even ate it! It tasted like pasta in garden spaghetti sauce. I omitted the green and pinto beans though. I also used cubed pieces of venison instead of ground. I recommend all to try it and vary it to your taste buds. My children and husband asked when I was going to make it again!

This was very good. Very little prep time, just let it simmer away! Mine turned out fairly thick, almost like chili - it would be good with cornbread. My 13-month old couldn't get enough of it.

I make this at least once a month, until I run out of venison. The only changes I make are I leave out the green beans and add some beef broth to give it a more soup like consistancy. Husband and kids love this soup and I can make it in the morning and not have to cook..say on a Friday night. Which is what I'm doing today. :)
