I've never had mac and cheese soup. It's a very tasty and filling soup. This was easy to make and it tastes pretty much like mac and cheese! I did add about 1/2 t salt. Other than that, made as stated. Thanks for sharing!

Made this for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap. We eat mac'n chz once a week from a box. Wanted to try this for a healthier version. I used 16 oz homemade broth, chopped carrots and a couple blanched cabbage leaves (leftover from a steam recipe) in the food processor, and used sharp cheddar cheese. I also added salt and pepper. It needed a little more salt, but it was so good! Warm and comforting. Will make again!
