Another family recipe that I have been making for years. My kids still love it and ask me to make it when they come for a visit.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. :)

3Cook macaroni according to pkg. directions, drain well, and add to beans and sauce. (It will be soupy at first, but will dry up a little the longer it sits). We wait 10-15 minutes before serving.

If you are really hungry, you don't have to wait. The taste is the same either way. Enjoy. :)
