"This is in our regular rotation. I make it about once a month.. It's quite good and very inexpensive. I withhold the macaroni and cook it separately so I can save the leftovers without the pasta getting mushy."

"This is a simple recipe and easy to make. I suggest adding more onion and tomato. I probably won't make it again."

"Great recipe! Pottsy was concerned about flavor - cook your own beans with ham hock, drain and use them as you would the canned ones."

"The recipe was very simple to make and was very tasty. I made double the liquid because there wasn't enough for my liking and I know this was healthy but I added 1/4 cup of real bacon bits for my husband."

"This was really good but does need just a bit more something in the line of flavor. I will definitely make it again and will experiment with different options. My daughter and grand-daughter liked it also. My 18 month old grand-daughter liked picking the beans out and eating them by themselves."

"Hubby and I thought this was very good. The only thing I changed was to add 1 stalk of chopped celery in place of the celery flakes. It added a little crunch. This will be made again."
