Mama's Macaroni Pie

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Beeracuda

This recipe is from Mabel King's collection, the late actress known as Mama from the 70s TV Show "What's Happening!!", which I found while surfing the internet. I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds delicious.

Top Review by Chef Shadows

We liked this but it was a little to bland for our tastes. We tend to like a "bite" in our foods. I will add this to our main cookbook to try again with some changes. Black pepper or cayenne would have helped.
