Venus de Milo Soup ~My Way~ Low Calorie

Venus De Milo Soup

“Venus de Milo Soup originated from the famous Venus de Milo Restaurant, Banquet and Wedding facility in Swansea, Massachusetts in the 1960’s.

This home-style soup is distinctive and easy to make and the restaurant owners happily gave out their recipe.  So this quick and easy vegetable ground beef soup recipe spread quickly throughout bordering Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts and eventually across the entire country.  Cooks have adapted it to their own personal preferences and to whatever is on hand in the kitchen. Today you will see many, many versions of this great soup on the internet. This is my easy, fast, and delicious way to make it. 
 A one-cup serving is only 148 calories or 4 Weight Watcher Points.    Sprinkle some grated Romano cheese on top before serving if you’d like!”         Enjoy!”

Servings: 8


1/2 pound ground beef
5 cups water
1 package onion soup mix
1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
1 cup tomato sauce
1 (14.5 ounce) can mixed vegetables, undrained
1/4 pound elbow pasta, raw


1. In a large pot, brown the ground beef, using a masher to make the ground beef pieces very small.  Drain any excess fat.
2. Add in the water, onion soup mix, stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, and the mixed vegetables, including the liquid from the can.  
3. Bring this to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a separate pan, drain, and then add it to the soup.
5. Serve with grated Romano cheese.

  1. Happy New Year Angie from our family to yours! Will be making this classic for lunch today! Thanks for a wonderful recipe site!


  2. Veggie soup has a way of filling you up – looks like a good soup and if it only 4 points 2 cups would be enough for me too 🙂


  3. This sounds absolutely delish ! Am doing a low carb way of eating due to my diabetes and this sounds wonderfully filling and tasty. Thanks Ang. Love your recipes, thanks for sharing ❤
