Mama’s Beefaroni

I got bored with the usual meals that we’ve been having, so I went through my recipe box for some new ideas.  I found one of my Mama’s old recipes that I haven’t made for years.  It’s an easy recipe that has a ‘stick to your ribs’ quality and it’s so good.

I hope you’ll enjoy my Mama’s Beefaroni.

I don’t measure spices.  I like more oregano than Mama did.

Blend all ingredients together so that the tomato mixture covers all of the macaroni.

This is so much better than the canned, and it’s just as good reheated.

And with the cold weather starting to come, it’s a good meal to warm the soul.
