Tomato Macaroni Soup

Tomato Macaroni Soup

This is my most budget friendly recipe. I learned it from an old roommate I once had. She said her mother used to make it at least once a week when she was growing up.

There is no meat in this but it is filling. I don’t know why you couldn’t add some but I like that this quick night dinner doesn’t.

I cook the macaroni almost done and then remove some of the water if there is more than a cup or so left. Next I add the can of tomatoes and cook for another 5 minutes. Stir in the baking soda, this is what is going to neutralize those tomatoes so the milk won’t curdle when you add it. This mixture is going to really foam at this point so give it a couple of minutes before adding the milk, butter, salt and pepper. Reheat to just under the boiling stage and serve.
