If you have kids or grandchildren who enjoy pizza and pasta, they will love this Slow Cooker Macaroni Pizza Soup.
You will love this Macaroni Pizza Soup because it is so easy to make in your slow cooker. After browning the sausage, you simply dump everything into a slow cooker.
What is in this slow cooker Macaroni Pizza Soup?
This pizza soup includes Italian ground sausage. You can substitute the sausage for ground beef or turkey or a combination. This soup also contains chicken broth, spaghetti sauce, minced garlic, bell pepper, Italian seasoning, macaroni, pepperoni and topped with mozzarella cheese.
How did I come up with this Slow Cooker Macaroni Pizza Soup recipe?
My family enjoys my slow cooker Lasagna soup. I decided to use the same basic recipe but make a pizza soup. Instead of using lasagna noodles, I used Macaroni pasta and pepperoni. Even though the picture does not show the stringy Mozzarella on top of the pizza soup, you will have to trust me. I genuinely forgot to add it before taking the picture. The warm soup melts the cheese, and you have a stringy, gooey delicious topping.
Oh, How I love Paul Prudhomme Pasta Seasoning
My secret ingredient to add to any pizza or pasta recipe is Paul Prudhommes’s Pizza Pasta Magic. I am not an affiliate with Paul Prudhomme seasonings, but I simply love his products. Paul Prudhomme is a famous New Orlean’s chef, and he knows how to season food well. I can find Pizza Pasta Magic at my local Walmart and Kroger. If you do not find it in your store, use your favorite Italian seasoning.
