The hubby and I crossed paths coming and going at dinner time. I left him with the recipe and told him it was a quick dump in the pan type. By the time I returned he was done and told me how much he liked this soup because it was so quick and easy to fix.

This created an excellent soup base with strong cheese flavor, not watered down at all. Small shells were not to be found in the pasta aisle, I had considered buying a box of macaroni and cheese and just discarding the cheese packet. Most boxes are about 7½ ounces.
