I found this recipe 30 years ago on a can label. My family loved it, and I later found I always received compliments when I took the dish to potluck suppers. Since it's so easy to put together, it makes a real time-saver for a busy housewife or working mother.

"This was pretty good. Reminds me of a hamburger dish my mom use to make. Only used 1 Lb. beef. Still turned out good. I also put in a can of diced tomatoes so it wasn't dry at all."

"Came out great, my family loved it. Was in the mood for some home cooking flavors. I added 1 jalape?o with no seeds cause I like it a little spicy..I didn't use the warsc. sauce and half way through I needed about a cup more of water. ..my wife said we should try it with a can of pinto beans in it next time..will do."

"For a hearty one pot meal drop in a can of Bush's Original Vegetarian Baked Beans. Adds a mellow sweetness to the sauce. Yummm."

"I made this tonight and it was just o.k. The macaroni wasn't done & there wasn't enough liquid to continue cooking it. If I made this again I would add more liquid or less macaroni. I did add a little chili powder but it still needed something. I have made a similar recipe in the past which called for spicy v8 rather than tomato sauce & I prefer that over this one. Not a keeper."

"I was looking for a recipe like this without chili, cheese, Italian sauce, or a bunch of ingredients. I read this and thought it sounded a little bland. I was so pleasantly surprised--it's delicious! I've made it several times and been happy every time--there are usually no leftovers. My family loves it."

"I made this recipe for a potluck and it was a huge hit - I made a double batch and none came home :) I did make a few changes though. Instead of the tomato sauce I used one can NN small diced tomatoes with green pepper, celery and onion and one can Hunts diced tomatoes with basil oregano and garlic. (because I doubled the recipe) and I added a generous sprinkling of granulated garlic. Even my picky husband liked it. I'll definitely be making this one again."
