My Own Chow: Numi's Mac and Cheese Soup



It's not really mac and cheese as we know it, but that is the result of experimenting in the kitchen one night many years ago. I hadn't had this soup for the longest time, so when I was at the grocery store the other week, I decided to get some ingredients for it.

It is so freaking good, that even if I know just how many calories are in one serving, I don't really care! I will pay for this later on, and will probably be asking, " does nutrisystem really work?" in an effort to lose all the pounds that I have gained in the past few weeks.

Anyhow, here's how I made this.

Stuff:
  • 250 g of macaroni
  • 1/4 k of ground beef (or pork or chicken)
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 medium clove of garlic
  • salt, pepper
  • lotsa cheese
  • milk
  • asparagus (opt)
  • baby carrots (opt)
  • cayenne pepper (opt)
What to do:
  • Brown the ground meat, then saute the chopped onion and garlic.
  • Boil the macaroni according to the package instructions.
  • When the macaroni is cooked, throw in the meat/onion/garlic mixture.
  • Add the milk (about a cup, more if you want).
  • Add the cheese, vegetables, and seasoning.
Serve hot and sprinkle parmesan cheese - LOTS of it. Sometimes, I use strips of mozzarella, but that's really overdoing it.

This serves four people.
