This One Pot Beef and Tomato Macaroni Soup is a classic! It’s a healthy, one pot meal made in 30 minutes or less and loaded with vegetables. Includes how to recipe video

I had a totally different recipe planned for you today.

On the menu was a Tuscan flavoured soup with white beans and chicken, but all of a sudden on a chilly day I was overcome with a desire for Tomato Macaroni Soup.

I don’t know why, really. All I know is that it brings back memories of high school.

I liked high school. I was lucky to have some really great friends, was pretty good in my classes and had coaches who, for some reason, allowed me to pretend to play sports along with those friends.

I’ll admit, I’ve never been much of an athlete. I wanted to be good at sports, because my friends played sports, and it seemed like it made one really cool and popular.

I struggled through a year or two in every sport, and this soup brings me right back to the school canteen on tournament weekends.

Eating at the canteen just wasn’t something I did on a regular basis in school. I always had a packed lunch with my mom’s famous buns and chocolate chip cookies — and I never had extra money to spend.

Tournament weekends were different though — and I got to indulge in my favourites: Tomato Macaroni Soup (yes, I’ve always been a soup lover!), chicken fingers, chocolate milk, Ruffles All Dressed chips. The dinner of champions!

You’re a soup lover, too? Try some of my other favorites –> Lightened Up Slow Cooker Cheeseburger Soup or Slow Cooker Garlic Parmesan Chicken Stew.

Admittedly, my version of Tomato Macaroni Soup is a little like stoup, but if you find it too thick feel free to add more liquid to thin it out a bit!

What are your favorite childhood foods?? I would love to hear!

    The flavor was great, but the noodles just kept soaking up the moisture even after I took it off the heat. In the end, there was no broth left, just soggy noodles that fell apart. I used gluten free noodles, so that might have been my problem. So, I advise against that.

    • Ashley Fehr says

      Hi Bruce! Gluten free noodles do tend to be pasta when they are boiled in salted water alone, and then added to a recipe. I would recommend doing it that way if you are using gluten free pasta to ensure it doesn’t fall apart!

    Ok so what if it’s mid July? This soup looks amazing and I want some. LOL It is stormy right now in the southern half of Indiana, so I think that justifies soup. I’ll just tell everyone I’m testing it for fall.

    Your high school days sound fun, and aren’t food memories the best kind? This soup definitely looks like something I would crave on a regular basis, and we never had soup like this at our school canteen!

  8. Liz @ Floating Kitchen says

    Love the video, Ashley! This soups looks so cozy. It’s definitely still Winter over here, so I’m still loving all the soups. And I wasn’t much for sports either. I was definitely more of a nerd! Lol!

  9. Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says

    Now this is my kind of soup! I haven’t had a version like this in years, and now I’m totally intrigued! What a great way to bring back memories of high school, too. It’s cold here today, so I just want to dig into this deliciousness!
