The orginal soup was my Mothers' recipe. She always said the secret to her soup was to always add a teaspoon of chili powder to wake it all up.I have Changed it a bit through the years but this is always the soup I make when I have leftover liquid , Vegetables and Roast from making a roast in the crock-pot.

Directions Step-By-Step

you will need a Large soup - pot, pour in all the liquids, add your spices, add your vegetables, and your meat . Bring to a boil over Medium High Heat, Then lower Heat to a simmer and cover pan. simmer for 2 1/2 or 3 hours .
Make the Mac & Cheese the last 30 minutes of cooking time, Put 2 or 3 Tabsps. of Pasta or Mac & cheese in each bowl before serving and ladle the soup over the Pasta, ( I do my pasta this way so it won't get soggy ) and so if needed I can freeze part of the soup for another time.
