This was prettty good and easy to throw together,
Super easy, comforting dish. I used bowtie pasta in place of the elbow and wished I would have doubled the amount. The casserole tasted great but was soupier than expected. I ended up serving this with bread to soak up the sauce. It didn't make anywhere close to 8 servings as a main course. It was tasty and easy though and there was something satisfying about not having to cook the macaroni first! Thanks for posting.
Great recipe! I put ham in it but it would be good with chicken. It would even be a great tuna casserole. This is a recipe you can really play around with what you want in it for veggies or meat.
We all loved this dish. It isn't spicy but we didn't expect it to be, given the ingredients. It really is comfort food. I did add salt and pepper into the mix. I used tortiglioni instead of elbow macaroni as my husband doesn't like elbow macaroni. I did use 2 cups of the pasta and added an additional 1/4 cup milk to compensate. We will absolutely be having this casserole again and again. Thanks so much for sharing this terrific recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2008.
