Mama's Beef-A-Roni

When my kids were little that's what they called this. When the week was long and the money short, this made a little meat go a long way. I served this with garlic bread. This looks like it takes a long time to make, but it's really easy. I had to guess on the times, so if you try this please let me know how long it takes and i'll adjust it.
