Mac 'n' Cheese Soup


  • 1 package (14 oz) deluxe macaroni and cheese dinner mix
  • 9 cups water, divided
  • 1 cup fresh broccoli florets (I use frozen broccoli that has been thawed)
  • 2 TB finely chopped onion
  • 1 can condensed cheddar cheese soup, undiluted
  • 2½ cups milk
  • 1 cup chopped fully cooked ham

  1. Set aside cheese sauce packet from macaroni and cheese mix. In a large saucepan, bring 8 cups water to a boil. Add macaroni; cook for 8-10 minutes or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in another large saucepan, bring remaining water to a boil. Add broccoli and onion; cook for 3 minutes. Stir in soup, milk, ham and contents of cheese sauce packet; heat through. Drain macaroni; stir into soup.

Very good dish, but leftovers absorb most of the liquid. May want to add more milk when you eat leftovers.
