Beef & Bean Macaroni

Top Review by Soup Fly

I absolutely LOVE this recipe. It is the ultimate in comfort food for me and the flavors blend so well. I was worried there wouldn't be enough liquid and it would be dry after baking, but it wasn't a problem. I do think I'll use 2 cans of tomatoes next time. Didn't have a bowl big enough, so I just mixed everything right in the pan then popped it in the oven. I needed to add salt, but DH thought it was fine as is. This is a keeper!!
