Macaroni Soup

It doesn't get much easier than this.

It doesn’t get much easier than this.

If you have kids, you know how picky they can be. It’s not the prettiest of dishes, but it’s one that kids go nuts over. Some of us adults still eat it as a comfort food. I’m not sure how far back it goes in my family, but my grandma spoke of eating it as a kid. When I was a kid I thought this was the best lunch, snack or dinner in the world. Of course my mother and grandmother both made it with elbows, which carries the milk better than the egg noodles my daughter prefers, but it works with any kind of pasta you prefer.

Elbows or other pasta – Egg noodles is pictured – cooked, drained
Melt butter in hot pasta to coat
Put pasta in a bowl
Add desired amount of milk (we use whole milk)
Let the kids sprinkle on dried parmesan cheese out of a jar (they usually really pour it on).
