Beef & Roni

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Mama_Jennie

Another quick, inexpensive dinner made mostly with what you have on hand. I usually always have these ingredients in my freezer or in my pantry. I love this because it doesn't keep me in the kitchen all night during the week.

Excellent weeknight recipe. As another reviewer noted, this is really a lot of macaroni; I cooked the entire amount but ended up not stirring in about a cup (cooked). The parmesan cheese gives the sauce a slightly creamy flavor. My picky eaters loved it.
