Beef And Bean Macaroni


One of those simple comfort food dishes. Kicked up a bit just because we can! Beans A-F Beef Tomatoes Macaroni bring back memories of comfort!

Makes 8 cups beef and bean mix plus 8 servings macaroni


16 oz. box elbow macaroni – cook according to pkg. instruction in lots of sufficiently salted boiling water plus 1 T. veg oil, drain in colander, rinse quickly under cold water, return to pot away from stove, 


2 T. extra virgin olive oil 

2 t. garlic powder 

1 t. dried basil

salt and pepper to taste  

1 T. GO VEGGIE Shaker Parmesan 

Toss to distribute evenly – set aside

  • If the macaroni starts to stick before it softens in the pot while cooking, take a potato masher to it while it’s boiling – breaks it apart nicely (don’t wait too long though – you’re not trying to break the macaroni, only separate the elbows)



14.5 oz. can stewed tomatoes – Essential Everyday brand, cut slices into smaller pieces

14.5 oz. Hunt’s Diced Tomatoes

15.5 oz. can GOYA brand pink beans, including liquid

15.5 oz. GOYA brand black eye peas, including liquid

DR WT 4 oz. can mushroom stems and pieces

1 T. GO VEGGIE Shaker Parmesan

2 t. garlic powder

2 t. onion powder

2 t. dried basil

fresh grind black pepper to taste

1-  Prepare the macaroni.

2-  In large saucepan, over medium heat, combine all BEEF AND BEAN MIX ingredients. Stir well, bring to slow boil, adjust heat as needed. Cook 30 minutes. Adjust for salt.

3-  You can stop here if you don’t want the macaroni. The Beef and Beans makes 8 cups and tastes delicious on its own.
