I made this frequently when the kids all were home for Christmas. My hubby said we needed to install a traffic light in the kitchen....and something words to the effect "feeding frenzy". Any way I loved the fact that we were all together and this is one of the soups I used to make. It is a regional dish and every Mom and pop diner make this, as well as one of the local churches has this for their annual bazaar. There actually is a controversy as to weather you cook the mac in with the soup, or separate, every one up there has an opinion.
