Mac & Cheese Soup {veggies, cheese & pasta - what's not to love?}

I am a soup-a-holic this week. I tried to just stick with French Onion - but my heart went pitter patter for this mix of my 2 great loves: mac-n-cheese and veggies. It was super duper easy to put together and filling enough for even my growing boys. I used steam fresh veggies (you know the ones you throw in the microwave for 4 mins?) I started with one bag but threw in an extra since they looked so good.

1. In a large saucepan, bring broth to a boil over high heat. Add pasta. Return to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Add vegetables. Cook until pasta and vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes more.
