    Tasty soup. I cooked the macaroni separately since I was planning on eating this over several days and didnt want the soup to all be absorbed by the macaroni. I add it before serving. I cooked mine for longer than the 10 minutes as the carrots were still pretty hard at 10 minutes  -  08 Oct 2015
