This is a rather humdrum dish on its own and does not, in my opinion, do well as a main dish. Pair it with something spicy to which it can serve as a moderating contrast.

This soup brings back memories of my childhood, especially those days when Daddy decided Mum deserved a day off and chose to make supper for us.  We always looked forward to Daddy’s suppers.  He was no great chef; he didn’t try anything fancy, never followed a recipe or even did a special shopping, so far as I can recall.  Just looked in the cupboard and fridge and started putting things together in a stew pot.  More often than not it was some sort of macaroni stew.
