When I got married, 51 years ago, my sister sent me a butt load of recipe cards and pamphlets from her employer, the Hunt Wesson company. A version of this casserole was included. Instead of beef broth it called for a cup of water and a cup of frozen peas. As a very young, inexperienced cook this turned into one of our go-to favorite meals even after my culinary skills and repertoire improved. After my daughter was born and was old enough to ask for specific foods this was also one of her favorite dishes. Up until she was a teenager, when asked what she wanted for her birthday dinner she would always asked for 'Casserole' even though she had the option of any home cooked meal or restaurant in town. In the early days this would very often be our 'day before payday' meal as I could go to the store with $5 and come home with all the makings for a complete meal. LOL!
1.25.18 I think most of us have had versions of this dish known by many different names. I know I’ve made my own “hot dishes” over the years, and I never thought about cooking the macaroni right in the skillet...saved one dirty pan to wash! It did get a little thick once the mac was cooked, so I added some extra beef broth, but this certainly was quick and easy. Also, I think this is one of those recipes that you just have to adjust the seaonings to your taste preferences. I was looking for a little something different, so I did add more soy sauce and felt it needed more of a kick, so more hot sauce as well. Not sure that I’d make again, but it was OK.
Yes, I agree, we all have a version of this over the years, but we really liked it. Made same substitution as someone else and used 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes! I am gluten free and found the Publix brand of penne pasta tasted better than so many other rice noodles I've used. We couldn't taste any difference!!
Just Perfect for us!!
I made no changes and it was wonderful. During this time with no money, it was an inexpensive main dish to serve that was awesome for kids to eat and me too. It reminded me of my mom's goulash she served at least once a week.. loved it! Thank you
Made this tonight and my family loved it! Only thing I did different from this recipe was I didn’t add the beef broth. I didn’t want it to be watery, I like it thicker. Other than that it was perfect!!!! Thanks!
