Reviews for Macaroni Bean Soup
"I would describe it more as a "stewp" than a soup. This could be because I used a little more macaroni like Sundra Haucks said. I also didn't serve it immediately. I held it warm on the stove while preparing sandwiches to go with it. I chose this recipe because it has all those healthy veggies in it. I reduced the salt to 1/2 tsp. and the flavor was still fine."
"This soup was OK but a little bland. I probably won't make again."
