If you love down-home macaroni and cheese then you'll love our Macaroni and Cheese Soup. This comfort food in a bowl cooks up warm and creamy for kids of all ages to enjoy.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
  • 1 (7.25-ounce) package macaroni & cheese mix
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 cups (1 quart) milk
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot, bring water to a boil over high heat. Stir in mixed vegetables, macaroni from packaged mix (reserving cheese packet), salt, and pepper. Return to a boil, cover loosely, and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, including reserved cheese packet. Reduce heat to medium, cover loosely, and simmer 10 minutes, or until hot and creamy, stirring occasionally.

How about adding a basket of our warm Muffin Tin Cloverleaf Rolls for dunking? Mmmm!

Love it! I had some Southwest Chipotle Greek Yogurt dip and stirred some in! OOOO its so good!

I added a can of cream of chicken soup, 1/2 small onion chopped and sauteed in 2 T. butter and an extra cup of milk. Was a little more tasteful!!

Very easy for a busy weeknight meal. Comforting and easy to modify. I substituted chicken stock for water and added pre-cooked chicken to give it more body. This was awesome with Jiffy cornbread muffins! Just a quick meal that tasted good.

With the salt in the macaroni cheese packet, plus the Cheddar cheese, I am wondering if the 1 1/2tsp. of salt might be a bit too much sodium. Guess I will just have to try it and see what happens. Sounds delicious!

comfort overload!! i will probably add the diced ham & hush puppies on the side.YUM

I am wondering if you can use the mac and cheese mix with the creamy cheese instead of the powdered cheese.

wow LOVE the idea!!!!:D

Didn't he use chicken in this recipe when it aired the other day?

I think you could use alfredo box cheese dinner for a different taste. This sounds like winter warm soup to me.
