Mom's Macaroni Tomato Beef Soup

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.
