I really enjoyed this soup. It was easy to assemble and tasted great! I will be making this again, and again.
I needed a quick dinner and I was hungry for soup. I found this recipe and thought it looked good. This was very easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I only used 1/2 tsp of salt like the previous reviewer. I used alphabet macaroni's as that is what I had. I cooked the hamburger, onions and garlic at the same time and didn't use the olive oil. My family enjoyed this but thought it needed more pepper.
This is definitely GOOD EATS, AB_Fan!!!!! (I am a huge Alton Brown fan too!!!) I was totally craving something like this even though it is 106 outside here in the desert today!!!! It is really tasty and hearty!!!!!! I drained the tomatoes because I figured that's how the recipe would be and, after tasting, used just 1/2 tsp salt. This is so easy and fast to make!! This is a real keeper!!! Thanks!!!!!
