Great soup, my fiance couldn't shut up about how good it was. He likes a lot of "stuff" in his soup, so I put extra elbow macaroni and a can of great northern beans in it. I also used ground turkey.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour the beef broth and macaroni into a sauce pan.
  2. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally, until macaroni is tender.
  3. Cook the ground beef in a frying pan, stirring to break up large chunks, until meat is brown; drain off fat.
  4. Drain the beans (reserve the liquid).
  5. Puree 1 cup of beans with all the reserved liquid in a blender.
  6. When Macaroni is tender, stir the pureed beans, whole beans, cooked meat and spaghetti sauce into the pot.
  7. Heat though and serve.
