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)


  1. 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.
  2. Add the diced onion and minced garlic to the pot, and sauté for a few minutes until the onions become translucent.
  3. Stir in the diced carrots and celery, and continue cooking for another 3-4 minutes until the vegetables start to soften.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

  1. Once the soup has simmered and the vegetables are tender, add the cooked macaroni to the pot and stir it in.
  2. Check the seasoning and adjust with more salt and pepper if needed.
  3. Allow the soup to simmer for an additional 5 minutes to let the macaroni absorb some of the flavors.
  4. Remove the bay leaf, and your Beef and Macaroni Soup is now ready to serve.
  5. 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.
