macaroni and cheese soup
When my oldest opened up The Friend magazine she wanted to make this recipe so we saved it for General Conference weekend. We altered the recipe a tad to make it a little bit healthier and to my surprise (and my husband's surprise) it was good! My kids really enjoyed it so it's a keeper. Not a recipe I imagined including on our favorite recipe blog but here we go!
macaroni and cheese soup (adapted from The Friend magazine, Oct 2012)
1/2 pound bowtie pasta
9 cups water, divided
1 cup chopped broccoli
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped, cooked ham
1 (11 ounce can) Healthy Request cheddar cheese soup
1 tablespoon chicken bouillon granules
2 1/2 cups milk
Bring 8 cups of water to a boil and cook the pasta for 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Bring the remaining water, chicken bouillon granules and broccoli to a boil. Cook for 2 minutes.
Add the soup, milk, ham and onion. Heat well. Stir in the drained pasta and serve.
