How do you make dill pickle soup?

  2. Cook macaroni according to package directions. (Undercook the pasta 1-2 minutes, el dente).
  3. Mix together with red sauce, beef broth, diced tomatoes (undrained), cooked pasta, pickles, and cheese. Cook for a few more minutes and serve. (Optional: you can add in the pickle juice if you want more pickle flavor.)
  4. Garnish with shredded cheese, sour cream, and diced pickles.

Soup is casual

My hosting style has changed over the years, and now in our new cozy mountain home, I’m loving a more casual style of entertaining. Like serving this Cheeseburger Dill Pickle Soup Recipe–super easy!

BEST Cheeseburger Dill Pickle Soup Recipe

4 personalities, entertaining styles

When I think of the 4 personality types, the hospitality environment is different for all of us. Florence Littauer was the author of many books that I read on the personality types years ago. Now it’s all about the Enneagram, with 9 personalities!

Today I’m summing up hosting with just 4!


You’re not spontaneous, and you have to be in control with the guest list, decorations, menu, and the conversation, with assigned seating! (Yup, been there!)

You’re sensitive to how things turn out–flavor of food, décor, if people enjoyed themselves–and you have a tendency to over-personalize the outcome, if there is a problem.

This type of personality does entertaining well, because it’s so thought out–colors, smells, the greeting–everything is magnificent! (Which can cause a bit of stress.)


This person definitely has a sense of being in charge, from beginning to end. Being a visionary, you can see (and do) the entire party by yourself. You’re driven by excellence!

But you’re not opposed to delegating (handing off chores), and can even be a bit bossy.

You are a person who has very high standards, and might even be a bit competitive when it comes to activities (games, conversation), and even the people you hang out with (welcoming guests who are similar in taste, background, outlook).

This hostess is very pleasant, everyone loves you, and you have a ton of friends who enjoy your company.

Being an introvert, you may be less organized and prepared for the event, and feel a little frazzled when company arrives. Let’s just say, you’re a last-minute planner.

You love sitting around the table, engaging in good conversation, but would panic if there was any discomfort or controversial subjects discussed. Guest’s may get up to do the dishes, which you’re okay with. You do not always have to be in charge!


You are super bouncy, fun, and friendly to everyone. No one is a stranger. In fact, come one, come all. The more the merrier! You’re very creative with ideas, meals, décor, games, discussion points.

You see everyone’s needs and jump in to help, being sensitive to each person, and engaging with the quieter ones during the meal. (You’re an excellent conversationalist:) Now you can be a bit scattered, when throwing a party together (bad time management), but you are impulsive and adventurous with your ideas.

If you are planning a casual dinner anytime soon, hosting a soup night is super easy. You make one pot of soup, serve bread and drinks – BAM!

We love Cheeseburger Dill Pickle Soup Recipe! Dill pickles? Why, yes. My friend, Cathy, at Noble Pig, has a creamy dill pickle soup recipe, and also a dill pickle butter (what?? yum!) We also love my Golden Rice Salad, made with dill pickles (sort of like potato salad!), and speaking of potato salad, you’ll have to try my Best Potato Salad (with bread and butter pickles, but you can certainly use dill pickles).

This recipe is made with DeLallo Food’s Elbows pasta and Tomato Basil Pomodoro Fresco sauce, it’s a hearty soup that tastes just like a cheeseburger!
