    This was really easy to make and really good! Based on many comments I did modify the recipe slightly. I used 4 cups of beef stock and 2 cups of water, and also seasoned the beef with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Delicious!!

    I let it simmer for few hours and added 2 cubes of beef bouillon cubes as I needed more flavor. It was demolished by most of my kids. I enjoyed it as well!

    This was very easy to make! I used two packets of onion soup mix and added oregano, powered onion and powered garlic because it was a bland before.

    This was very bland. I added extra salt and some beef bouillon and it still needed more seasoning

    Delicious soup. I added 3 Knorr bouillon packets and started with 6 cups of water. I liked how easy it was. For sure, I will be making it again.

    Great meal to make without having to buy so many ingredients. I made a couple changes to the recipe though that made it a 5 star rating for me like chicken stock instead of water, johnys seasoning and some cheese. It was really delicious and made enough for my family of 5 plus there were left overs. This recipe will certainly be added to our dinners we cycle through.

    This turned out amazing! I had to add a lot of seasoning and I will probably substitute beef broth for the water the next time I make this

    this recipe is so easy and taste great will definitely be made again
    I ended up using beef broth instead of water and it was incredible. I had to boil the macaroni separately because after simmering for an hour there wasnt a whole lot of liquid to boil the noodles in

    A great soup to make in a flash! I cut up onions to sauté with the beef. And added two packages of the onion soup mix for more flavor. It was tasty, hearty b/c of the macaroni but not as thick and heavy as chili.

    It was easy to make and tastes great.
    A little bland so I added some beef bullion (Better Than Bullion brand) and some chopped garlic.

    Perfect!!!! I substituted low sodium chicken broth for the water. I enjoyed it as a chilli.

    Was terrible. No flavor at all. I had to add all types of seasonings to this to try to make it even a little bit edible for my family. Will never make this again even if it was super cheap to do.

    This came out good! I used 2 1/2 cups of chicken broth and 2 cups of water. I think whoever is making it should add their own seasoning to their liking to make it flavorful. It was an inexpensive recipe that made enough for leftovers!

    Came out great! Read the reviews so I followed recipe with some additions; 5 cups water but used two packets beef and onion soup mix, two cans roasted tomatoes with garlic, 1 tbsp garlic paste, 1 tbsp red chili paste. Added a splash of hot sauce with lime juice and this dish came out AMAZING!!!!!

    This was very bland in my opinion. I would’ve loved some spice. Maybe I will add chili powder to my leftovers. Only 1 packet of soup mix for 5 cups of water doesn’t give much flavor. . Once I put in the dry pasta & frozen veggies and cooked for 15 minutes, 90% if the liquid was absorbed. It was very chunky and more like a stew than a soup. I’m not gonna make again.
