  1. Brown ground meat in pan with chopped onions and garlic over medium heat. (If using ground beef, drain beef after browning). Lightly sprinkle salt, black powder, and garlic powder over meat.

    You may omit the salt if you're trying to cut back on sodium or are using a chicken broth that is already salty.
  2. Add plum tomatoes and stewed tomatoes. Let simmer, then add chicken broth and mixed vegetables.
  3. Add uncooked elbow macaroni and let cook until noodles are tender.
  4. Garnish with parmesan cheese and serve.
