My mother always made this for us when we were kids and now I am making this for my own family. It's easy, cheap and is great for leftovers. This is delicious by itself, or may be served with grated cheese. Add a tossed salad and garlic bread for a great family meal.

My picky daughter loved it! (of course she didn't know it was Bambi). I used pinwheel pasta though since I didn't have any elbow macaroni, which obviously tasted the same. Thanks for the recipe!
