My kids were introduced to canned Beef-A-Roni at their grandparents. So I had to find a homemade substitute because they really liked it! When they were small, I did everything from scratch. 1 - because I couldn't afford the canned stuff. 2 - I really wanted to give them a good nutritional start in life.
I just remembered this recipe because it had so few ingredients, so I'm posting it to the group "6 and Less."
