Macaroni Vegetable Soup

Yum
As the winter enters our lives, I typically go into soup mode. I love my soups and a variety of them, nothing goes better on a cold winter day then a hearty soup to warm you up. Growing up my family always made sure to have a pot of soup on the stove during this time of year, I would normally go with a big bowl of soup and that would be my meal throughout the day but for others you may want to try a small soup and a sandwich.

Vegetables are a part of any soup and you can add as many as you like but to get the soup to be more hearty you have to add a pasta to the mix, macaroni goes well with this dish but you can use small tube pasta or bow tie pasta in place of the macaroni for those that may not like it. A broth is always part of any soup and my choice of broth here was chicken but vegetable can go just as good.
