"My Grandmother had eight children. Needless to say she learned how to cook with a little bit of nothing and make do with what she had. This was and still is one of my favorite meals -- and super-simple! Cornbread is a perfect pair with this!"

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the macaroni, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Place the bacon pieces and onion into a large saucepan or soup pot over medium heat, and cook and stir until the onion is beginning to brown and the bacon is crisp, about 10 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, beef bouillon cubes, water, garlic powder, onion powder, and cooked macaroni, and bring to a boil. Cover the pot, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes.

I wanted to like this. I definitely love the idea of it. It had WAY too much beef stock. It didn't even taste like tomato soup. I am going to give tomato soup another try (I'll even add the baco...

I followed this recipe as close as I could, using organic tomato sauce, organic diced tomatoes and because I was out of beef bouillon, I used a can of Campbell's double strength beef broth and d...

I absolutely loved this recipe! This was so yummy and will be made often in my house. I don't like bouillon cubes, personally, so I used beef broth instead of cubes and water. I also think I ...

delish! The only change I made was to add black pepper and italian seasoning because the broth was a bit bland without it. I will definitely be making this again.

Realy enjoyed this soup - will be a great winter meal. Used up the leftover ham on bone from Xmas, and all the surplus tomatoes from the summer crop, and did a double batch to freeze away for t...

Delicious! We really liked this and it heated up well the next day in the microwave.

Big hit for a grilled cheese & soup supper! I left out the pasta because I did not want a filling soup, but could easily add it to the plentiful leftovers. I was able to use sauce that I had fro...

This was great and took about 20 minutes to assemble. I did everything as written except I used a bag of bacon bits instead of regular bacon. It's much easier that way.
