Western Trail Beef and Macaroni

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by ALH7401

I found this on a package of beef stock and this recipe is basically unchanged from that. I found there to be a bit too much liquid and after cooking the pasta I needed to boil it down slightly to thicken it up some.

This makes a ton! I wish I would have cut this recipe in half and we will be eating leftovers for days. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't add the water. We all enjoyed this. I topped mine with cheddar cheese and the rest of the family topped theirs with parm cheese. Made for a quick weeknight meal.
