Ground Beef Tomato Macaroni Soup

Ground Beef Tomato Macaroni Soup Recipe

Ground Beef Tomato Macaroni Soup is a basic homemade tomato soup with ground beef and macaroni. It is quick and easy to make using basic pantry ingredients. 

My husband’s family has a recipe for tomato macaroni soup that they have been making for years. My husband grew up eating it. His parents and grandparents made it all them time. 

Ground Beef Tomato Macaroni Soup

My husband and I ate it during our early years of marriage because it was so inexpensive to eat. I always thought of the recipe as a depression era recipe because it was so basic. In fact, it was almost too basic. 

My husband would totally disagree with that. He loves it because it is so basic. I however have never loved the soup because it felt like it needed something more. It needed more flavor and something to make it more filling. 

So over the years I have come up with different versions of a basic tomato soup. I took the concept of my husband’s family recipe and have turned it into different versions that are more filling and more flavorful.

This soup is my favorite version. It is a fairly classic tomato soup with ground beef and macaroni added to it.

I love this soup during the fall and winter. It is quick and easy to make with ingredients that I almost always have on hand.

  1. Thank you for sharing! This is right up my alley, frugal and easy. I think I will modify it slightly and cook it in my crockpot so that it can simmer away all day while I do other Mom things, then stir in cooked macaroni right before serving.
