    This is not real beefaroni. The recipe is lame – big time lame. It wouldn’t anything like the stuff in the can. However, it is homemade and it does give some ideas on how to make my own.

    1. Sorry I failed with this recipe. When I first made it, it looked like beefaroni. I added a few ingredients and called it “Homemade Beefaroni”. Anyways, thanks for visiting.

    To me this is hamburger helper with elbow noodles. I do like the worchestershire sauce part. I started using it my regular hamburger helper and gives it a nice *twang*.
