I made this for DH & DS and they both enjoyed it and said 4 stars. I don't know why mine came out so much redder than the others but it was well liked no matter the color. It's surely easy to make and who doesn't like that? Be sure to watch the amount of liquid once the macaroni goes in. I needed to add a cup to keep it moist .

This as good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't add the oil to cook up the stew meat. I also used minced onions instead of a medium onion. My boys really enjoyed it.

I had to add water, maybe cause I added 2 carrots and a package of mushrooms. I used a 28 ounces can of tomatoes. I like this dish. It's easy to do and a complete meal. Thanks PaulaG :) Made for 123 hit wonders.

The macaroni really IS a nice switch from the usual potatoes in this stew. The paprika and chili powder added a nice flavor. Once it was done simmering, the macaroni and beef were most prominent. I could have used some more veggies. I think next time I'd add in some sliced carrots and some more tomatoes. I'm pretty sure that this would be a great crockpot recipe, too. Thanx for posting it.
