Affordable Basic Restaurant-Style Tomato and Macaroni Soup

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Andre

Ever had this comfort soup in a restaurant? Tomatoes, onions and pasta--always a winning combination. This recipe is simple, affordable and fat free. Grandma made this popular homemade tomato soup in our family restaurant back in the 50's. Experiment with rice, parsley, leftovers, herbs, celery leaves, cheese or diced tomatoes. This recipe is better reheated and easy to double or triple!

I've never had or heard of this before, so I didn't know what to expect. Considering the simplicity of it, I'd say it was alright. Thanks for sharing!
