I made this yesterday since we hadn't gone for groceries yet. I calculated everything and came up with it being 1 pt. per serving for 2 cups of soup. (I had bowls of soup all over the counter top). It's very filling and tasted pretty good.

I filled a large soup pot 3/4 full with ff beef broth
1/4 c. lentils
1/4 c. long grain rice
1/3 c. barley
1/2 c. instant brown rice
1 c. uncooked whole wheat penne pasta
2 stalks of celery diced
1 can green beans drained
3 small cans tomato sauce
Italian seasoning
Salt to taste

Cook until the celery is tender. Makes 8-2 cup servings.
Each serving is 1 pt.
