Tomato Macaroni Soup Recipe

Oh fall . . .
I am loving all the beautiful leaves, the cooler sunny days, the pumpkin-flavored everything, and getting the chance to wear my boots and sweaters.
However, I am not loving the fact that it’s coming to an end so quickly! I just saw the weather forecast for the next few days . . .


I am freaking out a little! Snow for Halloween is not my favorite!!!
When we were growing up, my mom would always plan our Halloween costumes around our winter coat- we usually had to be something that you could wear a coat over or under and it looks like this year is shaping up to be something similar.

So while the snow falls down on my freshly carved jack-o-laterns, I will be whipping up a bowl of this yummy soup.

This soup is a copycat from one of my favorite restaurants from Logan, UT called Juniper Takeout. Now that we don’t live there anymore, I tried to recreate it as close as I could. It turned out pretty good!

  1. My Mother use to make something very similar to this recipe, she didn't use brown sugar, she used regular sugar, just a small amount to lessen the tang from the tomatoes. I love it, it's great on a cold day, plus it's quick and easy to make. It's also relatively cheap to purchase all the ingredients, with the exception of the ground Beef of course.
  2. This is a great recipe! I did change a few things and next time I make I may change a few more, but it's pretty fabulous. Changes: I used 4 cloves of garlic instead of garlic powder, I used twice the amount of grated carrots, I used Italian sausage instead of ground beef, I used Italian seasoning instead of dried basil. I also went ahead and sauteed the onion and garlic with olive oil before adding the sausage to brown. Next time I'll probably use about half the ketchup and half the A1 and Worcestershire because it was a tad "saucier" than I like. Not bad at all, I mean I'm eagerly eating it as is, but I think I'd prefer it with a little less tang. Also want to add that I'm pretty sure this soup saved me from a pretty bad cold that I was trying to catch. I was feeling really crappy, sore throat, body aches, the beginning of a fever, and I ate a big bowl of this soup, which felt great on my throat, and next morning I was feeling waaaay better than I thought I would. So I say, better than chicken soup for a cold cure!!

  3. Just fixed this for dinner. My family thought it was way too sweet. It was very hard to finish the bowl. Not sure what to do with the leftovers. I'd like to try it again but will use less than half the sugar and decrease the amount of Worcestershire and A1 sauces.
  4. Made this tonight. I skipped the brown sugar. Did 2 tablespoons instead of 3 for A1 and worcestershire. Did about 1/2 cup of ketchup and added about 2 tablespoons of mustard. I did add the optional carrots. Also, I added 5 leaves of fresh basil and let them simmer with the soup and removed when finished. I also used about 3 cloves of fresh garlic.

    We make this soup all the time, but ours is a lot simpler. Macaroni, ground beef, but we just mix it with tomato sauce and tomato juice, seasoned with salt and pepper, garlic, and onion if you want. I usually add onion salt or powder. Sometimes we add diced tomatoes as well, just depending on the mood. I will have to try this one though too, it sounds good! :)
  6. Just the recipe I was looking for to use up leftover cooked pasta and chunky pasta sauce. So I followed the recipe with the exception of using the pasta sauce instead of the canned tomatoes, the ketchup, and the tomato paste and then did not use A1 or brown sugar. The grated carrots were a great addition but I also added some baby spinach for extra veggies. Topped with parmesan cheese. Thank you - great recipe that I'm sure will be made again!
