Ingredients

  • cup beef bouillon granules

  • ¼ cup dried minced onion

  • ½ cup dried split peas

  • ½ cup uncooked twist macaroni

  • ¼ cup barley

  • ½ cup dry lentils

  • cup long-grain white rice

  • 1 cup uncooked tri-color spiral pasta

Directions

  1. Use a canning funnel or any funnel that has about a 2-inch neck. This will make it easier to fill the jar with the ingredients. Be sure to use a wide-mouth, 1-quart canning jar.

  2. Layer ingredients in the order given: bouillon, onion flakes, split peas, small shape pasta, barley, lentils, rice, and enough tricolor spiral pasta to fill jar.

  3. Attach tag with cooking instructions: In large kettle, brown 1 pound ground beef or stew beef cut into bite-size pieces in a little olive oil. Remove tricolor pasta from top of jar and reserve. Add the rest of the jar contents to the kettle with 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.
