Cheesy Goodness!!! Oh My, is this good! The cheese topping makes this soup! The ingredients make a winning combination for a hearty meal. As a side use crusty bread, ritz crackers or saltine crackers.

This is a very good soup, and I doubled the recipe. I too subbed the chicken broth for the water, but only added 1 teaspoon of the salt. I would suggest reducing the amount of elbow macaroni, or you'll end up with a goulash rather than a soup, so the next time I reheated the soup, I saute'd a bit of onion in some butter, then added another can of stewed tomatoes, another can of tomato sauce, another teasp of the Worcestershire sauce, another teaspoon of Italian seasoning, another 1/2 teasp of brown sugar, a 1/2 teasp of salt, and 2 more cups of the chicken broth. I enjoyed the shredded cheddar cheese ontop the soup. One more thing I forgot to add... I too cooked the macaroni separately, then added it to the soup. Thank you for the recipe Seasoned Cook!!

Made this for lunch today. It was another quick dish to get on the table. The only change I made was to add about 3 times the amount of meat and 1/2 cup water. In doing so it made it really thick more like a stew then soup. Everyone enjoyed it, so I will make it again. This was Recommended by mightyro_cooking4 in the *I Recommend Tag Game 2010*

I added 2 cups chicken broth to make a little thinner and only used 1/2 tsp salt. Omitted ground beef and onion. I added 1/2 tsp onion powder and garlic. Try with broken up spaghetti noodles and added 1/4 cup parmesan cheese. Was very good. Great base recipe and i kind of combined it with another good on on this site to make it my own. Thanks so much
