Hamburger Soup Leftovers:
Like most soup leftovers, they will be better the next day. With any pasta soup recipe always keep extra broth on hand to add to the soup when reheating. The noodles or pasta will absorb much of the liquid, so it is typical to add more broth to the leftovers.
Hamburger soup with macaroni is an old-fashioned favorite. This soup was made in a big pot with a little ground beef and lots of macaroni and tomatoes. This soup could be stretched to last days with a side of homemade bread and butter. This recipe is still a low-cost meal and leftovers are even better!
