Woodland Ogre Halloween Beef and Pasta Stoup Recipe

Woodland Ogre Beef and Pasta Stoup Recipe, Days and Evenings are getting colder! Bring back the warmth with this hearty "Stoup" Stew and Soup all in one and good enough to feed and Ogre! Perfect if you celebrate Halloween or Harvest!
Hola Amigos: Not everything hasto be skulls, bones and witches for Halloween right? there are plenty of other fun characters out there to play along with make a recipes around them. This is one example, the friendly (?) Ogre!
We all learned to love that green fellow capable of making the "princess"  forget about getting  the ultimate makeover and be true to herself.  I wasn't quite fond of his taste for dinner (neither were the 3 blind mice) but I'm sure this dish would satisfy his appetite and the appetite of any of our own big and little ogres at home!
Woodland Ogre Beef and Pasta Stoup Recipe. When soup is hearty enough to feed an Ogre it should be called a "Stoup" . Comfort food just like a Stew but easy to prepare as soup! A crock pot meal perfect for Fall or Winter!

It's a crock pot dish too...so no need to slave over a cauldron  to enjoy comfort food at the end of a cool Fall or Winter's day!
Woodland Ogre Halloween Beef and Pasta Stoup Recipe, a hearty meal to bring comfort when the weather is getting colder. Beef and pasta together in one Crock Pot Meal!

Just like a real Ogre would do, don't even worry to much about perfectly cutting veggies, just rough chop everything and after 4 hours or so enjoy the goodness!

As you can see here, nothing is Mushed <-----not quite sure that's an actual word but you get the idea. Everything remains whole giving it the perfect "Stoup" consistency...a Stew and Soup together! what is not to love about it!

Here you have it my friends! Like our favorite character said once "Ogres (and bloggers) are like onions", no we don't stink, but we have layers and deep inside we all believe in fairy tales and we  bring them to life with projects, crafts or why not a recipe! Enjoy and remember that everything tastes better with a Pinch of Love!


Woodland Ogre Halloween Beef and Pasta Stoup
1 (1 1/2-2 Pound) Chuck Roast
1 Small Bag Frozen Stuffed Pasta
(I had Ravioli handy, but you could use Tortellini too)
1 14.5 Oz Can Petite Diced Tomatoes
1 14.5 Oz Can Sweet Corn
1 14.5 Oz Can Beef Broth
1 14.5 Oz Can Condensed Tomato Soup
1 Large Onion Chopped
8 oz Baby Bella Mushrooms
Salt, Pepper, Celery Salt , Onion Powder to taste (or use your own favorite spice mix)
Parmesan Cheese
Get your Crock Pot ready.
Make a bed with your chopped onion and place the roast on top, add the rest of ingredients except the Parmesan Cheese.
Cook for 4 hours. Serve with some Parmesan Cheese on top and Enjoy
Personal Tip: I like to use chuck roast for soups because it's not expensive and it gives the best flavor to soups, stock and broths, but I don't like the fact that it has bones and a bit too much fat for my taste, so I take the extra step of trimming the bone and fat before I freeze it, so it is ready to go when I need it. 

Prep Time: 5 Minutes                              Cooking Time 4 hours                         Serves 6 Bowls
