You see, the whole family was still getting over some bouts with a little bug we picked up while in So Cal & so I think we were all in a soup mood. I started thinking what I could make besides just a beef soup & I definitely wanted more than a vegetable beef soup too. I wanted an easy pasta recipe that would be hearty & filling but fill that craving for comfort food. So after playing with throwing this & that into the pot the hubs & I came up with this Beef Macaroni Soup that really filled what we were all craving.
Hearty & full of flavor – you can’t beat this on a cold winter day.
Beef Macaroni Soup
You can add more broth for a thinner soup or add a little less for a thick & chunky style bowl of goodness. Add a little sprinkle of Parmesan cheese on top – makes it so good. This will rival anything you can get at your favorite Italian restaurant.
I promise this will be your new favorite when it comes to easy recipes. It is practically effortless & everyone LOVES it!

Looks delicious! Thank you for sharing at Family Fun Friday! Pinning to our party board!
These soups look really good. I have a dumb cooking question however…why is chicken stock used instead of beef stock? I don’t make much soup as we live in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas and it never really gets cold enough to motivate me to make soups, LOL! Thanks.

Thanks for your question Dennise. It really wasn’t a conscious decision- we were throwing what we had in the pot at the time. I just happened to have chicken stock & not beef in the pantry. You could make it with either. I did like that it didn’t give an overly beefy flavor by using the chicken.
