In a large saucepan, brown the meat and onions in the oil. Add remaining ingredients except for the macaroni and bread. Blend well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Skim as needed. Add the macaroni. Bring to a boil and cook for about 12 minutes or until the macaroni is al dente. Season with salt and pepper.
In a ridged skillet, over high heat, toast the bread on each side. Serve with the soup.
