My Mom's Old Fashioned Macaroni Soup

Robyn Bruce Recipe

By Robyn Bruce

My mom is now 91 years old. She grew up during the depression era and she was one of 12 children. Obviously, they had to invent ways to feed a huge family on a shoe string budget. Her mom would make a great big pot of this soup to fill all those hungry little bellies. It's great tasting and makes a good sized pot. I raised my son making this soup and he loves it to this day. I also like to use it to carry lunches to work.
