Venison Italian Soup

4.5
(91)

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.
