MACARONI AND CHEESE SOUP     {PRINT THIS RECIPE}

8 ounces elbow macaroni
1 tablespoon butter
1 – 12-ounce package of frozen winter squash, thawed and drained (if needed).
freshly grated nutmeg
2 medium carrots, chopped finely
1 medium onion, chopped finely
2 ribs celery, chopped finely
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper
1-quart chicken stock (**more to thin if needed)
1 cup dry white wine
6 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded Swiss Cheese
6 slices American Cheese
1 pound Velveeta cheese, cut into chunks

-In a large stockpot, cook the macaroni a few minutes shy of what it says on the package directions. Drain.
-To the macaroni, add the thawed winter squash and nutmeg and stir well to combine. Set aside.
-In a large pot over medium-high heat, cook the carrots, onion, and celery in the olive oil until very soft (approximately 5-7 minutes).
-Season with salt and pepper.
-Reduce the heat to medium.
-Add the chicken stock and the wine to the softened vegetables and bring to a low simmer.
-Stir in the cream cheese, cheddar, Swiss, American cheeses. Stir well to combine and so that the cheeses melt.
-Add the macaroni and squash mixture into the pot. Stir well.
-Add the cubed Velveeta cheese into the pot and reduce the heat to low.
-Continue cooking on low, stirring occasionally until the soup is thickened and heated through.
(I tried this recipe without the Velveeta and to be honest, the soup wasn’t thick enough for our tastes. The addition of the Velveeta cheese was definitely the ingredient that brought this soup all together).*If the soup has become too thick for your taste, thin with some additional chicken stock and stir to heat through.**
-Season with additional salt and pepper (if needed) and serve!

Bacon Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuit Recips

I served my soup with some amazingly delicious Bacon Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits. These tasty little morsels were even better when dipped into this creamy, cheesy goodness.

Here is a BONUS comfort food recipe if you’d like to make them to go along with the soup. I highly recommend it!!!
