San Francisco Macaroni Soup with Leeks (1910)


"Slice 6 stalks of leek very thin, and put in casserole with 3 ounces of butter. Simmer until the leeks are cooked, then add 2 quarts of chicken stock and bring to a boil. 

"Add 6 ounces of macaroni that has been boiled in salted water for 15 minutes, and then cut pieces 1-inch long. Boil again for 15 minutes, and season with salt and pepper. 

"It is ready to serve when the macaroni is soft. Serve grated cheese separate."
