Beef and Macaroni Soup

Beef and Macaroni Soup is a hearty and comforting dish that’s perfect for colder days. Here’s a simple recipe to prepare this delicious soup:


  • 1 lb (450g) ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 can (14 oz/400g) diced tomatoes
  • 6 cups beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup elbow macaroni (or any other pasta of your choice)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  • In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until browned and cooked through. Drain any excess fat if necessary.
  • Add the diced onion and minced garlic to the pot, and sauté for a few minutes until the onions become translucent.
  • Stir in the diced carrots and celery, and continue cooking for another 3-4 minutes until the vegetables start to soften.
  • Pour in the diced tomatoes with their juice, and add the dried thyme, oregano, and bay leaf to the pot. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pour in the beef broth, and bring the soup to a boil. Once it’s boiling, reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let it simmer for about 20 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  • Meanwhile, cook the macaroni according to the package instructions in a separate pot. Make sure not to overcook it, as it will continue to cook in the soup later.
  • Once the soup has simmered and the vegetables are tender, add the cooked macaroni to the pot and stir it in.
  • Check the seasoning and adjust with more salt and pepper if needed.
  • Allow the soup to simmer for an additional 5 minutes to let the macaroni absorb some of the flavors.
  • Remove the bay leaf, and your Beef and Macaroni Soup is now ready to serve.
  • Ladle the soup into bowls, and garnish with freshly chopped parsley for added freshness.

Enjoy your delicious Beef and Macaroni Soup! It’s perfect for a comforting and filling meal. You can also customize the recipe by adding other vegetables or herbs based on your preference.
