This looks like an easy weeknight meal that my family will enjoy. It seems like a vegetable or chili type of goulash soup. I will serve it with grilled cheese or a fresh loaf of bread, and side salads. Thanks for the great soup recipe. We are soup lovers, all year long!

This reminds me of a hamburger stew that I make from time to time...the only thing missing is tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers. The pasta is a nice touch and if you were to leave it out, this would make a great chunky sauce for spaghetti or even lasagna. Me personally, I'd let the sauce cook with the parmesan in it for an extra depth of flavor and enjoy it with some freshly baked french bread.

Yummy! I think this is one recipe that you could make on the stove or in the crockpot. If I cooked it on the stove, I would just add the macaroni to the soup and cook it that way to thicken up the soup. It wouldn't work that way in the crockpot so adding it cooked would be better. Pasta can get overcooked in the crockpot if it is in there too long. Very tasty. Very nice blend of flavors.
