Mom's Macaroni Tomato Beef Soup

Karen B


This recipe has been passed down from my grandmother, to my mother, and then to me...time has come to pass it along to my daughters, and to all who enjoy a hearty, flavorful soup that eats like a meal. The slow simmer brings out the most flavor. You can speed it up, but it will not be the same.
