Alphabet Soup Approximately 85 years ago the machine in a noodle factory went haywire and started spitting out noodles in the shape of the letter C. When the plant manager was notified he initially thought the entire batch would have to be scratched, but then thought better of it. He decided to get the machine to make other letters as well.

So the machine was essentially revamped until it was making all our letters to the alphabet! The birth of alphabet pasta was born and took off like a blazing fire! Soon restaurant owners were buying this pasta and creating delicious soups and Alphabet soup was born. Customers raved about this wonderful soup and thought this was a great way to get their kids excited about spelling! Their children could spell their names, or their pet and family names while eating a good wholesome and nutritious soup!

What a great idea! The original Alphabet Soup recipe contained only the Alphabet pasta, broth, vegetables but many people have altered the recipe, and now there are countless variations to the Alphabet Soup recipe. I regardless whether the recipe calls for beef, chicken, pork or sausage as long as it has the Alphabet pasta it is still Alphabet Soup! You too can make this wonderful soup for your family’s lunch or dinner.

The ingredients are few but the results are many. Spicy vegetable soup cocktail, thawed mixed vegetables, uncooked Alphabet pasta, ground round, beef bouillon cubes, water, and salt and pepper to taste. These ingredients and the simple to follow directions below will render your family a delicious, wholesome, and hearty soup.

Some hot crusty French bread with either a butter garlic spread or some melted cheese would make this wonderful soup a meal on a cold winter day or night. This soup is full of vitamin and mineral rich vegetables, protein and soothing broth that will warm you from the inside out!

Alphabet soup is considered a great dish for kids because it makes the meal more fun, plus they can pick out letters and spell words – perhaps the only time they are encouraged to play with their food! Making your own alphabet soup rather than popping open a can makes sense because you will end up with a fresher, tastier result as well as a healthier one. Who wants all those chemicals and additives you find in canned alphabet soup? Your soup might look different to the soup in the photo depending what type of vegetable juice you use, and what kind of vegetables you choose to add.
