Paleo Spaghetti Noodle Soup

Ack! A chest cold/flu has struck my house!! My poor baby is hacking up a lung, my hubby now has a fever and I just had to push through my illness. So what does every sick family need for dinner?? Soup! I had intended on making our family favorite of meat sauce with spaghetti zucchini but when illness struck I decided soup was a better bet. My older two boys gobbled up their bowls, so hopefully you like this as much as my family did.

Paleo Spaghetti Noodle Soup

Olive oil
3 lbs ground beef (grass fed is best)
2 carrots, sliced thin
3 stalks of celery, sliced thin
2 onions, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried mint
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 quarts of stock
2 6 oz cans tomato paste
14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes
6-8 zucchini, juilliened into noodle shape, microwaved for 4 minutes and then drained

In large soup pot swirl olive oil and heat over medium heat. Add ground beef and cook until almost browned. Add carrots, celery, onions and garlic. Sauté until most of the moisture is evaporated. Add seasoning, stock, tomato paste and diced tomatoes. Stir to combine. Add the zucchini noodles and stir. Cook on low for about 30-45 minutes. Serve and enjoy!!
