I ate a ton of this stuff growing up in the 50-60's! Delicious, cheap, and feeds a crowd. Ours was pretty basic, using just macaroni, canned tomatoes, margarine and only salt and pepper for seasoning. When I make it now, I do spice it up a bit with a little garlic salt and creole seasoning (my go-to seasoning) with the salt and pepper if more is needed. Will share my photo of the pot we just finished! Oh yeah, you gotta have a big ole pone of cornbread with this! :))
staple lunch of my childhood
I made this exactly according to recipe except that I only used 1 teaspoon of seasoning salt based upon other reviews. Very good, and my family liked it.
Great kid-friendly dish. Simple goodness. A bit heavy on the salt, but I adjusted to a little less than half. Next time I'll probably just use a teaspoon of Lawry's and some pepper but I tend to go light on the salt. My kids liked the buttery simplicity of this a lot and it is beyond easy. Thanks for posting.
I grew up with this recipe my grandma would make it for me. she would use just salt and pepper and throw in some cubed cheese at the last minute. now i make it for my kids they call it grandma macaroni's : )
The kid in me was like ooo oooo make it! And I'm happy I did :) Simple, quick, what more could I ask? I did think it needed an extra bump...so I threw in fresh basil and garlic and that is what made it for me! Since the pasta was so simple you could really taste the basil and how fresh it was. I'll definitely be making this often for my son. I didn't have Lawry's so I used Tastefully Simple seasoned salt (much tastier than most other salts). Thanks for a good recipe!
I've seen this recipe around for a while and am so glad I finally tried it! Good, simple side dish. I can easily see myself making this, and nothing else, for dinner when I am home alone. I think I could eat the whole pan! I didn't have Lawry's so just used salt and pepper.
I have made this a few times for a quick and delicious meal. Thanks!!
Such a simple side dish I loved from my childhood. Thank you for posting. Very cheap and delicious. I like mine with lots of salt and ground black pepper.Thank you for posting
